We will continue our new way of receiving gifts for local missions with our “Thank Offering” this coming Sunday, January 15th.
Please come prepared to say just a word of thanks for specific people, occasions, opportunities in your life as you bring an offering to help support the Macdonald Center here in Portland.
Presently the Macdonald Center serves about 350 people each week who are living in single room occupancy hotels downtown. Their work helps to keep these people in current housing and off the streets.
Here is a little bit about the Center’s work from their own website at www.macdcenter.org:
“The Macdonald Center enhances the lives of the forgotten poor through relationships, service and housing. We foster sacredness and dignity of all individuals, building community by breaking down isolation through outreach and hospitality for low-income residents. We are ‘Hope in the Heart of Portland.’”
