Winter Weather Coat and Gear Drive!

and we would love to do our part in helping relieve some stress in our community!
If you have coats, sleeping bags, tents, tarps, or backpacks (new or used) that you would like to donate, we'll take them starting next week. All donated items should be clean and in good condition (no rips, tears, holes, or stains, etc!) These items can be dropped off in the EA room in Buchan on Monday the 15th through Friday morning.
Next Friday, the middle school will be meeting with representatives from JOIN, Outside In, P:ear, Blanchet House, and Rosehaven to continue our conversation around houselessness in Portland, and while they chat with the reps, students will be assembling care kits (sign up to donate here) for the organizations to take back to their communities. We think this  will allow for deeper and more meaningful conversations and we look forward to doing this with the high school in December. 
If you have question about donations or would like to help, please reach out to Simone!
