Please Help the Homeless of Portland survive the cold!
Unusual timing as this is, seeing as I just added an update to this post, the community of Portland needs your help ASAP!!!!!!
You may be wondering how you can help. Here are three organizations that are in need of supplies.
665 NW Hoyt Street, 280-4700 Ext. 2
111 W Burnside Street, 647-7466
3. Salvation Army Female Emergency Shelter (SAFES)
30 SW 2nd Avenue, 227-0810
Specifically, these organizations need blankets, tarps, jackets, socks, gloves and hand-warmer packets. You can drop off donations at each location.
If you’re stuck at home, you can still donate. The Union Gospel Mission has set up an Amazon Wishlist, where you can directly purchase sleeping bags, blankets, gloves and sleeping pads to be donated to the shelter, with items ranging from $9-32. You can also donate money here.
Severe weather conditions are expected through Sunday morning. Here’s a full list of cold-weather shelters that are open.
If you see someone in need of shelter, call the police non-emergency number at 503-823-3333. If you are in need of shelter, you can contact 211 Info by dialing 2-1-1.
