from Stefani Roybal, Catholic Community Services of Lane County
When below-freezing temperatures came early this winter, Catholic Community Services activated its cold weather shelter program, moving unhoused families off the streets and into the warm and dry shelter of a motel room.
Funding allowing this comes from a county grant and private donations. Unfortunately, the early start of winter has caused an early exhaustion of cold weather shelter program funding. And, we still have months of winter ahead!
Please consider a donation to help us extend this safety net of a warm hotel room for families through the upcoming coldest nights of winter. A gift of $77 will shelter a small family for one night.
Our single, unhoused neighbors rely on Catholic Community Services for items such as tents, tarps, sleeping bags, blankets, and ponchos for protection.
A gift of $5 to $30 can provide one of these necessary items. Please consider helping.
Visit ccslc.org to make an online donation to keep families sheltered during our coldest winter nights and protect our unhoused neighbors from the rain and cold.
Thanks to our friends at the Fisherman’s Market at 830 W. 7th Ave., Eugene, 20% of all sales on Wednesday, Jan. 18, 2023 will be donated to Catholic Community Services and used for the cold weather shelter program.
