Do you know the Good Neighbor Center in Tigard has been around for 18 years? I didn’t! They do incredible work, sheltering 70-95 families annually. They are the largest shelter in Washington county, but housing isn’t all they provide. They also provide meals, hygiene items, clothing, linens, case management, life skills and Rent Well classes, resume and job seeking services, Life Skills classes, Homework Club for kids – just to name a FEW. Their help for families doesn’t end when they leave the shelter. Food boxes, clothing, school supplies, rent and utility bill help is also available.
Donations that are needed all year long are men’s/women’s/children’s clothes, clothes, shoes, hygiene items, cleaning supplies, household items and any food items (perishable or non-perishable). They are always in need of financial contributions and even gift cards for more specific needs. Visit goodneighborcenter.org for their list of needs and current volunteer opportunities.
We have so much to be grateful for this holiday season. Now is your chance to give someone else something to be thankful for this Thanksgiving.
