Put Your Change to Good Use

Gather up the change in your car, house or office. We’ll use it to feed and house the homeless and low-income people we serve.

How to participate:

  1. Collect your change.
  2. Take a photo of your change pile and share.
    Tag @BlanchetHouse #CoinCatch #ChangeChallenge 
  3. Bring your change to Blanchet House to pour into the community jug.
  4. Smile knowing that you are helping to alleviate suffering in Portland.

Help us meet our goal of collecting $10,000 in change.
