One of the many ways you can help your community is by donating your time and/or resources. The sections below provide information on the opportunities available through the city:

Life Jackets

Those who wish to support the life jacket loaner program may do so by making a monetary donation or a donation of a new life vest to the city of Independence. Monetary donations are accepted at city hall during regular business hours. All monetary donations are applied directly to the purchase of additional life jackets. Each donation is considered a charitable contribution and will be confirmed by providing the donor with a receipt. The city does not accept donations of used life jackets.

If you would like to donate a life jacket to the city of Independence, please email or call 503-838-1212.

Heritage Museum

Whether you want to volunteer, intern, donate an object or document, or provide a monetary donation, no matter the size, your contribution plays an essential role in allowing the museum to thrive.
