Cold temperatures bring increased need

January 3, 2013

Temperatures are dropping, which means people experiencing homelessness in our community are even more vulnerable on the streets.

Thanks to our mission-driven non-profit partners, like JOIN, volunteers are reaching out to those on the streets, offering help, warm blankets, and clothing.

If you or someone you know needs help, or you are able to donate time, money, or warm clothes to those in need, please call 2-1-1 from any landline or (503) 222-5555 to find out more.  You can also visit online.

Special thanks to KGW for covering this important issue.
