Winter Needs at Transition Projects

When temperatures drop, we work extra hard to make sure our neighbors experiencing homelessness are safe, warm, and dry. Community support is essential to these lifesaving efforts. 

Here are four ways you can make a difference this winter season:

Volunteer With A Group

Email our volunteer coordinator, Emily Coleman, to schedule a time to bring your corporate, school, or community group in for a volunteer project.

Serve A Winter Meal

Sign up for volunteer orientation and schedule a time to cook and serve a hot meal at one of our shelters.

Host A Donation Drive

Sign up to host a donation drive at your school, office, or community center.

Volunteer During Severe Weather

Sign up for a “Severe Weather Shelter” volunteer training to help us get people inside on the coldest nights of the year.

Purchase Items Off Our Amazon Wish List

If you are seeking to donate but are unable to drop off items in person, purchasing items off of our seasonal Amazon Wish List is the best way to get supplies to us quickly. The items on this list are regularly updated based on our needs and shipped right to our doorway! View our Wish List here.                     

Have other ideas for how to get involved? Please contact Emily Coleman, Volunteer Coordinator, at or (503) 488-7745.
