Here are specific ways to provide relief and support for individuals and communities impacted by wildfires.
Wildfire Relief Volunteer Opportunities
In the wake of the Santiam Canyon wildfires, River West is partnering with Gates Community Church to serve and bless families impacted through property loss and displacement. Gates Community Church has opened a resource store to serve the families in the canyon as communities open up and begin cleanup efforts. Store Hours are from 10 AM to 4 PM, Monday through Saturday. Click here to learn more about specific ways you, your family, or community group can sign up and serve.
An online platform where vulnerable families with ties to DHS can submit needs and get connected with donors throughout Oregon. Click here to access the online platform (Note: Families impacted by the wildfires will be indicated by *Wildfire Relief* in the description line). If you would rather make a wildfire relief donation you can mail a check with “MyNeigbOR Wildfire Relief” in the memo line to the following address:
Tualatin Food Pantry
If you would like to meet a physical need, consider signing up to serve at Tualatin Food Pantry. Their clientele has increased greatly this past week as families have evacuated or lost all of their perishables during extended power failures earlier this week. New volunteer positions are posted often, so check their signup sheet regularly.
