Help for Homeless

Homeless families are heartbreaking.

I have found a concrete way to help.

Will you join me in this?

 

 

LifeWorks NW is a local non-profit that supports parents and children struggling with addictions or mental health issues. Many are homeless.   click here for Lifeworks info

They are opening an 6 bedroom home for women and children in recovery. This home is completely empty. 9 women and 10 children will be living here.
Will you help me furnish and supply this for these small families?

 

Pick one or several items!
Perhaps you and your co-workers or family would adopt a room, providing all the bedding, dressers, curtains. etc.?  All donations are tax deductible.

If we stretch a bit and make this a great holiday for these local people who don’t have the necessities! Let’s finish this before Christmas!

A couple points:

  • Let me know by email what item(s) your are donating and when. Phone :503-575-8620  Email click here: tom@tomtaylorre.com
  • Can you deliver them or will you need a pick up?
  • Used items need to be in great condition.
  • I’ll link you up with Ginger at LifeWorks for your  donation receipt.
  • If  you can’t get hold of me, Ginger at LifeWorks will be able to help you. Email click here: Ginger.Laughlin@lifeworksnw.org
