A new initiative of Every Child Lane County, providing a space that speaks dignity, honor, and value over children experiencing crisis.

Brighter Side Giving Store is a resource for school-aged children in crisis. Children are invited to “shop” in a space that allows them to make choices. Our goal is to help children feel empowered and special with a sense of dignity.┬áThis experience is available by referral from community organizations including the Oregon Department of Human Services and serves children in foster care, unhoused children, and children experiencing other crises. Children will shop an assortment of coats, clothing, underwear, shoes, backpacks, books, toys & more.

GET INVOLVED

$250 can provide a youth with four new outfits, new sneakers, a new winter coat, a new sweatshirt, new undergarments, and a few special extras like books, toys and accessories when they visit the Brighter Side Giving Store for a personal shopping trip.
