FROM PROJECT HOMELESS CONNECT!
Yachats and Waldport! We need your help!!
Project Homeless Connect (PHC) will be held at the Nazarene Church in Newport on Oct. 3rd and it’s so very important for Lincoln County’s homeless population – and it’s quite large.
PHC is expecting over 300 homeless folks to receive personal items to ease the pain of their predicament. Over 30 organizations HAVE signed up to help them.
We really need everyone to hunt down donations and bring them to drop-off locations.
We are very thankful to Vicky Prince of Ya-Hots Video and Country Store and to Darrell Taylor who is store manager for Ray’s Food Place in Waldport. Donations can be dropped off at those two locations. Darrell said Rays has already has agreed to donate 240 bottles of water with possibly a lot more in donations coming.
Here is a list of items needed and we greatly appreciate your generosity to those who are in need. Donations needed:
New Men’s Underwear
Individual Chip Packages
New T Shirts L, XL
By the way those who would like to donate in the form of a check they can be made out to Samaritan House and are tax deductible. You can send it to Lola Jones, Administrator, Samaritan House 715 SW Bay St, Newport, or. 97365. Please write PHC in the subject line of the check.
