Join us for our many ongoing and/or annual events at the Milwaukie Center!
The Friends of the Milwaukie Center is a non profit organization whose sole purpose is to support the programs and services of the Milwaukie Center. We do this through a variety of fundraising activities and you can help by getting involved in any of these activities:
Bring your friends for an evening of fun, refreshments and cash prizes! Every Thursday evening at 6:30 pm.
Handcrafted items for sale at reasonable prices! The Gift Shop has hundreds of consignees who offer their treasures for sale. All profits benefit the programs and services at the Center.
A large container is in the south parking lot for the collection of newspapers for recycling.
Every year, people in the community generously support the Friends of the Milwaukie Center with their donations. From $5.00 to $500.00, contributors know they are providing much needed support for the Milwaukie Center and its valuable services.
Cars, trucks, boats and motorbikes may be donated to the Friends of the Milwaukie Center. A receipt can be provided for these tax deductible donations.
Used Cell Phones and Undamaged Ink Jet Cartridges
Bring your working or non-working used digital cell phones for redemption and recycling. Also undamaged ink jet cartridges may also be donated, as well as digital cameras, MP3 players, GPS devices, digital picture frames and other small electronics. A receipt can be provided you for these tax deductible donations.
Check your drawers for these little treasures and bring them to the Friends’ office.
