Make a donation to the Clothing Center:

Is your student in need of pants, shirts, jackets, sleepwear or other clothing? The Portland Council PTA Clothing Center can help. We have been assisting PPS students in need since 1964. We are a non-profit 501(c) 3.

To use the Clothing Center, obtain a "Clothing Center Referral Form" from your school office. This form is required to be able to use the Clothing Center and can be obtained by any PPS School Secretary.

Bring the form and your student to the center during business hours, Monday or Thursday school days from 10:00am -1:00pm, September through the end of April. The Center is located at the Marshall HS Campus, 3905 SE 91st Ave, Room B-60.

​Have clothing to donate?  The center is always in need of clothing in good (or new) condition. Just drop it off at your school in a box or bag marked, “PTA Clothing Center” and it will soon be on its way to us. ​

Would you like to help at the Clothing Center? We welcome volunteers at the Clothing Center any day that we are open for students. For information about volunteering contact: Sharon Meigh-Chang PTA Clothing Center, Director at 503.293.0783 or
