Wish List

 Wish List for Portland Bloom Project

To help reduce program expenses, The Bloom Project appreciates the donation of supplies, services and/or equipment that are regularly used during our work sessions. Donations will be acknowledged on our website and Facebook page unless anonymity is preferred.

Should you have any of these items that are new (or almost new) and would like to donate them to our organization, please contact Stacy Addison (Project Manager) at: s.addison@thebloomproject.org
