Union Gospel Mission offers emergency shelter during freeze

Cold weather, slick roads, school and event cancellations are all problems many of us face during the freezing cold weather in Portland. These are minor annoyances when you are homeless. During this freeze Union Gospel Mission is offering an emergency overnight shelter to the homeless. The dining room at the Mission is a place to sleep out of the cold.

Union Gospel Mission needs blankets, coffee and pastries for the emergency shelter. Please drop off these items at 15 N.W. Third Avenue, or call 503-274-4483.
