Portland Homeless Family Solutions

Sack Lunch Program

For many years, CUMC has helped support Portland Homeless Family Solutions

(PHFS, previously called Goose Hollow Shelter). When the shelter moved to SE

Portland in 2019 and then had to restrict volunteers in their building due to the

virus, we were not able to help like we had in the past.

Feed A family

Our church did a great job supporting Christmas Sharing again this year. However, the rest of the year looks very bleak for families in need – especially those that are homeless.

PHFS has asked if we can help with their sack lunch program. Groups put together 15 sack lunches and deliver them to the shelter to be available for families. The plan is for a small group to meet at church every second Monday of the month at 10:00 a.m. We will follow all Covid 19 guidelines while assembling and delivering the sack lunches. Groceries will be paid for by donations.

Each month we need:

  • 1 person to shop for groceries
  • 2-3 people to help assemble the sack lunches
  • 1 person to deliver them to the PHFS shelter
