The Homeless are Cold, Freezing.
Much of the country is being hit by extremely cold weather. This is a plea to remember the homeless. There are many. Oregon has less shelter capacity than most places, which means there are thousands of people stuck outside. Currently it is frozen and frigid outside. "Warming stations" open at night to get more people inside, but with limited capacity.
This is a plea to remember these homeless shelters at this time. They need donations of both money and warm clothing, and food. If you are near one, and can safely get there, they probably also need volunteers. At least some of them have Facebook pages or web sites so you can check what their current needs are.
This is a link to a small local one I know of. If you can provide links to others, please do so in the comments.

Remind your family and friends, please, and do what you can to help. People will die outside in these low temperatures.
Thank you for reading and whatever you can do to help.
