From the Director of Grace Wins Haven shelter in Newport:
Grace Wins Haven shelter is having a volunteer training session Thursday evening at 6pm for the shelter’s resource center as well as for the Lincoln County Hazardous Weather Shelter. The meeting will be held at Grace Wins Haven, 438 NE 1st in Newport. With winter coming and the resource center being open they are going to need lots of extra hands.
Grace Wins Haven is in dire need of food supplies. They really need a lot of frozen and canned microwaveable or toaster oven foods for both breakfast and dinner along with milk, juice, coffee, creamer, sugar, tents tarps, sleeping bags and backpacks.
And here’s something special. Next Monday or Tuesday the homeless are launching a large litter clean up as a gift to the community for all their help and giving to Grace Wins Haven. They will hit the streets at 10 am and pick up trash all day.
