The Willamette Center is a newly opened shelter for 120 women and their partners.  This shelter is located very close to Winterhaven, and is the only shelter in this area.

The Winterhaven Community Service Committee would like to ask for your help in an urgent-need drive for the shelter.  They are in need of the following items:

There will be a collection bin and sign in the front hallway of the school starting this Friday.  We will be receiving items from this Friday until Friday, December 2nd.  This is a short amount of time, so please donate soon.  If you have any questions, please do not reply all to this message.  Send me an individual message to

Thank you so much for your support of this deserving cause! Also please stay tuned for our annual holiday food drive coming soon.
