BEND, Ore. - The Shepherd's House Ministries issued a call for immediate help Wednesday due to this week's severe weather conditions.
Here's the text of their announcement:
Our Cold Weather Shelters in Redmond and Sisters need to extend their operating hours to ensure no one is left on the street during this extreme weather.
We also need monetary donations to help purchase food and other necessities to make sure men, women, and children can be cared for and find refuge from these extreme conditions. Donations through our secure website are the best way to ensure help arrives in time for needy people.
We are also in need of alternate daytime locations for the homeless for warming and hot food options for the next 48 hours. Sleeping bags, gloves, stocking hats, hand warmers, and tents can be dropped off at our Division Street location in Bend or Grace Gate Church in Redmond between 6 pm and 7 am. Hot food donations are also helpful (pizza, soup, other).
Please help today!!
