Newport Warming Shelter needs a little “Community TLC” – The Ken Gagne donation shuttle leaves Yachats for Newport at 11am.
Ken Gagne of Yachats says:
If anyone including any of our Yachats stores or restaurants wants to donate some prepared foods,soups.desserts, juice, rolls, bread, snacks, fruit, etc, I will be leaving Yachats at 11 this morning for the warming shelter in Newport and would gladly swing by and pick up your donations. You can reach me at 541-961-3766 or text me.
Your generosity would be very much appreciated by the homeless. They’re huddled inside the Main Exhibit Hall at the Lincoln County Fairgrounds in Newport, glad to be out from under two very nasty windy storms bearing down on the coast, right now.
If you’re heading up Newport way you can drop off your donations at the Lincoln County Fairgrounds, Main Exhibit Hall, the Pick of the Litter Thrift Store entry. If you could possibly volunteer to help out please give Danielle Keyes Emerick a call at 541-351-1400.
