help us help others.

At our Annual Dinner: Welcome Home in Seattle on May 14th, we’ll be doing a service project packaging necessities and small gifts (soap, shampoo, edible treats, etc.) inside a pair of socks.  The socks and supplies will then be given to those who need them most.  The Seattle agency that will be distributing the socks on our behalf is Real Change – an organization whose mission is to create opportunity and voice for low-income people while taking action to end homelessness and poverty.

Thanks to everyone who attended the Happy Hour Sock Drive in Portland last night we were able to collect 165 pairs of socks!  If you were unable to attend but would like to help us reach our goal of 300, please drop a package of new adult socks at our offices any weekday between 8am and 5:30pm (3928 N Williams Ave, Portland, OR).  Thank you!
