Support Our Community With This Year’s Winter Gear Drive
Living on the streets, especially without the proper attire and gear for cold weather, is dangerous and potentially life-threatening. This winter, Cascadia staff will work tirelessly across the city and in close partnership with emergency response systems to help individuals experiencing homelessness stay safe during severe winter weather.
But we need your help!
Outreach providers need winter gear they can pass out now to people living outside. Having the right gear staged in the right places before a crisis will help providers better focus on direct services and life-saving efforts in the moment.
Cascadia’s Street Outreach Team is in need of winter clothes and materials to help those living on the street stay safe and warm. High-priority items include:
- Coats in larger sizes (XL and larger)
- Socks in larger sizes (men’s size 14 and larger)
- Sweatpants and sweatshirts in larger sizes (XL and larger)
- Hand warmers
Our Amazon Wish List is set up for your convenience. Thank you for helping build a whole community!
