Your help today gives youth a better tomorrow.

Wish List

Another way you can directly support our youth is by donating items on our wish list, which is updated regularly based on seasonal needs. If you have questions or items you'd like to donate, please email us at donations@oasiscenter.org. The needs of our young people change, so please email us before starting a donation drive. Due to space limitations and current needs, we are currently pausing donations for all clothing not on our wish list. Instead, you can donate those items to ThriftSmart, a locally-run thrift store, and ask staff to register the donation in our name. ThriftSmart counts donations towards gift cards which enable our young adults to pick their own clothes. Contact ThriftSmart at 615.833.8200 to discuss a donation or pick-up. (updated 6/21/24)
