“Youth can do a lot of really powerful and important things. We just need people to believe in us.”

Your help today gives youth a better tomorrow.

Wish List

Another way you can directly support our youth is through donating items on our wish list. We are so grateful for your generosity! We update this list regularly as seasons and needs change. If you have items that you would like to donate or you have questions, please email us at donations@oasiscenter.org. The needs of our young people may change so please email us before starting a donation drive. Due to our inventory and needs, we are currently pausing any clothing donations not listed below on our wish list. You can donate clothes to ThriftSmart, a locally-run thrift store, and ask staff to register the donation in our name. ThirftSmart counts donations towards gift cards which can enable our young adults to pick their own clothes. You can contact ThriftSmart at 615.833.8200 to discuss a donation or pick-up.
