Eighth Annual Winter Weather Necessities Drive
Please Note: Supporting Our Society has made adjustments
to our annual campaign again this year due to the Covid-19 Pandemic.
This year the Winter Weather Necessities Drive will be accepting
donations of NEW sleeping bags, toiletries, hats, gloves and socks.
** COATS WILL NOT BE COLLECTED OR DISTRIBUTED THIS YEAR **
Eighth Annual Winter Weather Necessities Collection Event
Our Collection Events will be held during the months of October and November
at various locations throughout the city of Portland.
These locations are where the community can drop off their donations of
NEW sleeping, bags, toiletries, hats, gloves and socks.
Those donations will be distributed in December.
Eighth Annual Winter Weather Necessities Distribution Event
Our Distribution is what it's all about!
This is the day where we put the efforts of both SOS and the community together.
The Distribution will be an outdoor, socially distanced event where our visitors
will receive a package of NEW sleeping bags, toiletries, hats, gloves and socks.
This event is free to the public and packages will be available to anyone who wants one.
In the previous years SOS has distributed more than 3,000 coats and Winter Necessity backpacks that included toiletries, hats, gloves, socks and thermal blankets.
This year the goal is to again serve as many people as we can.
