Ways You Can Help the Homeless During the COVID19 Outbreak
Do you, your family or friends want to help alleviate suffering while you’re at home? Here are the best ways to help during this time of crisis. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you plan to drop off items.
As a nonprofit solely funded by individual donors like yourself we depend on donations to continue our services. We were not prepared for the surprise expenses caused the COVID-19 pandemic. Our need for supplies and food has greatly increased as has the need for our meals. Your support is critical to our doors staying open to the line of people outside.
Our meal guests need adult-sized clothing for men and women appropriate for sleeping outdoors in the cold and rain. Warm and water resistant items are best. Clothing can be dropped off Monday to Saturday, at our entrance on NW Glisan St. from 8 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. Please avoid dropping off during meal services.
