Prepare a homeless neighbor for winter
Every night it’s estimated that over 2000 men, women, and even children are homeless and unsheltered on the streets of Portland. They live in doorways, under bridges and behind bushes. Even with winter bearing down, because of fear or embarrassment they would never come in to the Union Gospel Mission, so we are going to them through our new outreach of the Search & Rescue van.
For $29 you can provide one “Search and Rescue Kit”.
This “Kit” is customized to the needs of the person we meet and contains things like a meal, socks, a coat, a blanket, hygiene items and whatever is needed for them to survive a Portland winter. This “Kit” is also the start of a relationship with our street staff and an invitation to LifeChange where long term hope is possible.
How many Search & Rescue “Kits” can you provide?
