Help the homeless "Beat the Heat"
While the weather in Portland has been cloudy and rainy, summer will officially begin on June 21. While many welcome the warmer temperatures, for the homeless, summertime can be difficult.
For the first time, Union Gospel Mission is launching "Beat the Heat" a special one day event on Friday June 25 to help supply those on the street with summer clothing- t-shirts and shorts, baseball caps, and bottled water.
Our friends at Cafe Delirium have agreed to provide specialty coffee drinks for our guests to enjoy when they pick up these items.
We need your help. Here are two ways you can help the homeless "Beat the Heat"
1. Collect summer clothing, hats and bottled water and drop them off at Union Gospel Mission (map) or at Cafe Delirium (map)
2. make a secure online donation
