City Outreach is a ministry of the McMinnville First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) to the people of Yamhill County. 

We are located in the lower level of the church facility in McMinnville - where we receive donations of clothing, furniture, household and personal items. These goods are donated by caring people and organizations, sorted by our volunteer staff, then given to Yamhill County residents who are in need. We freely give to those requesting assistance because City Outreach Ministries is all about giving and sharing the blessings of God with others.

City Outreach was established by New Horizons Church in 1999, and became a ministry of the McMinnville First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in 2009. Continuing to grow, we operate with a volunteer staff of more than 30 people who regularly serve approximately 250 families each month.

Volunteers for this ministry are welcomed, and needed for volunteer teams that spend 3 hours weekly or monthly:
Lead Persons: To oversee and assist in all aspects of the daily operations;
Desk Workers: To greet and check in shoppers and update the computer database;
Sorters & Shelf/Rack Stockers: To process incoming donations and make them available to shoppers;
Children's Workers: To read, play games, etc. while parents "shop";
Spanish Translaters: Approximately 50% of our shoppers speak very little English
Donations Needed: Clothing; Furniture and Small Appliances; Housewares (pots, pans, dishes, silverware); Linens, Bedding & Towels; Children's Books & Toys; Baby Items; Personal Items (Soap, Shampoo, Toothpaste, Toilet Paper, Diapers, Laundry Soap); Food (Non-Perishable Food is always welcome, i.e., tuna, canned fruits, vegetables, soups, peanut butter, pasta, beans, rice and powdered milk); etc. in "good condition." 

Financial contributions are welcomed as well... We are in need of financial support to cover monthly rent & utilities, building improvement & repairs, phone, and supplies.
