Transition Projects
Published: 09 December 2016

Throughout the month of December, Transition Projects is collecting much needed winter coats and clothing items for Portland’s most vulnerable citizens - people who are experiencing homelessness. During the annual Winter Coat & Clothing Drive, donors can drop off items to five of Transition Projects 24/7 facilities (listed below) or at any Windermere offices throughout the Portland metro area. In addition, a special drop-off day will take place Dec. 14 at Transition Projects’ main offices located in Bud Clark Commons.

Transition Projects provides needed clothing items for individuals experiencing homelessness and living on the streets. Winter days and nights are now at freezing temperatures with the addition of snow and freezing rain, and people are in dire need of warm coats, clothing, and boots to survive.  Items needed for adult men & women: coats, pants, shirts, socks, shoes/boots, underwear, gloves.
