BENEFITING: Portland Rescue Mission Ministries, Inc.
The Burnside Shelter has offered hope to men and women facing homelessness for nearly 70 years. The Mission is facing a problem, however, that is threatening our efforts and the services we offer on a daily basis. The Burnside roof, which has been patched and maintained far beyond its expected lifespan is in desperate need of replacement. A worn roof is no match for the snow and heavy rain Portland endures. The weather last winter finally pushed the Burnside roof to a state beyond repair. It must be replaced. And we need your help. Men and women in crisis need consistency and something to count on. The overnight shelter, warm meals, hot showers, and other resources they find at the Burnside Shelter provide hope and protect those in our community who are in desperate need. Our guests not only experience immediate relief from the streets, but are introduced to recovery options through the compassionate support of caring individuals. Will you consider supporting our efforts to replace the Burnside roof? Businesses, churches, groups, individuals, foundations, and trusts can all make a difference in delivering this one-time need. Your participation is most appreciated, in addition to your referrals to those who may be able to join you in this “roof-raising” project.
