While we realize people do not belong living in these conditions, and we are making every effort to change that as a community, the fact is that we are here. We want to make sure individuals are at the very least safe during cold weather events.
Cold weather sleeping bags can make the difference between life and severe illness or possible death in weather emergencies.
Can you help us ensure that our neighbors are safe this year?
PDX Saints Love, in partnership with Union Gospel Mission, will be organizing an Operation Overcoat event in East Portland's Lents neighborhood.
This event will give an opportunity for individuals living unhoused, this fall, to obtain a coat, backpack, blanket, & shoes.
There will be a hot meal, free haircuts, recovery resources,
and other supplies on site as well.
We will be in Lents Park on October 28th, from 5-7pm.
The event will be first come/first serve to our community.
We, unfortunately, do not have the ability to hold or deliver items -
but are open to mutual aid partners willing to pick up for neighbors.
For more information, please email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
