Gifts are needed by Dec. 12 for children of all ages, including those in middle school and high school.

Social Services Housing Pod offers programs to support families with housing instability. Each program benefits from the generous donations made through the Wish List. With the donations, parents can give a gift to their children.

Each item donated from the Wish List arrives at the Housing Pod office and is then delivered by Dec. 22 to a family with a child or children in need of holiday magic said Social Services Case Manager Cindy Garcia.COURTESY PHOTO: CLACKAMAS COUNTY - Social Services housing unit case managers Serena Powell and Tito Mendoza prepare to deliver Wish List gifts to families

"We like to call our office Santa's workshop, because we also have the joy of busily getting presents ready for families knowing how much the donated gifts mean to them this time of year," said Garcia.
