Operation Night Watch has been serving the homeless community throughout Portland for many years. They continue to feed and cloth the community on a weekly basis along with helping create access to medical services. They have selflessly served the community and now they need our help. On Saturday, September 14th we will be joining forces to help set this amazing organization up for success.
We will be moving clothing, clearing out the storage area, building a massive work bench and painting the area. We will also be helping to set up new clothing display racks so they can be better organized and better serve the homeless population.
So throw your blue shirt on (or get one when you get there), come out and help to make a positive impact on your community and those who need help within it. We will also have a prep day on Saturday September 7th. Feel free to sign up for that project along with this one if you can.

Inclement Weather Plan :

Certain host organizations, such as schools, may prohibit volunteers with certain types of criminal convictions from participating in a service project. Accordingly, The Mission Continues is requesting your consent to conduct a criminal background check in the event that your Platoon is engaging in a service project with a host organization that requires a criminal background check. By checking the box below, you authorize The Mission Continues to conduct a criminal background check.
If such a background check is required, it will be completed and used in accordance with applicable law. The Mission Continues does not automatically disqualify persons from Platoons based on criminal convictions. We want as many people as possible to have the opportunity to move forward in their lives through service, at the same time that we seek to protect the communities we serve together.
