Visit the Sharing Tree at Washington Square and look for Janus Youth with the red dot on gift tag

Throughout our programs, more than 600 children and youth will call Janus “home” this holiday season. The Sharing Tree at Washington Square Mall is a great way to help us make sure they each have a gift to open on Christmas morning.

Just pick an ornament from the tree located in the Nordstrom wing, near Williams-Sonoma, and purchase the item listed on the tag. Return the unwrapped gifts to the Sharing Tree by December 20 so they can be delivered by Christmas.

These gifts are distributed to Janus and eight other charities throughout the Portland metro area. Each year, more than 4,500 gifts are given to those in need through the Washington Square Sharing Tree.

Special thanks to Clipped Wings, a nonprofit organization of retired flight attendants, who coordinates the Sharing Tree every year.

Eighth Grader Organizes Race For Janus Youth

When 14-year-old Bella told her mother she wanted to organize her own “Family Fun Run” to benefit Janus Youth Programs, her mom thought, “Why don’t you just run in a race instead?” But Bella had a vision and a strong drive to organize the event herself, which she did on May 20th at the Wilson High School track. Every detail of the event—from garnering donations for swag items, applying for a grant to help offset costs, organizing a bake sale, to publicity—Bella planned with support from family and friends. The event was a big success and raised close to $1,000 for Janus.
