The Thoughts &
Gifts Project

The Thoughts & Gifts Project promotes the value and importance of low-income youth and seniors on their birthday. Our primary focus area is the Monmouth-Independence community, but we will serve all of Polk County, Oregon. By providing birthday presents, cards, and parties, as well as age-appropriate books, we want all qualifying individuals to feel exceptional and appreciated on their special day.
