Over the years, Tualatin has grown from a small bedroom community, to a town bursting at the seams with manufacturing, healthcare, retail, and many other types of industry. With this growth, the commitment by the community to take care of their own has not waned. Throughout the years, many businesses, employees, and residents have stepped up to help those less fortunate and we are pleased to share some of the many opportunities for you to donate right here in your community:
Banner Bank is supporting Oregon Food Bank and accepting food donations in their Tualatin location through the holiday season.
Columbia Bank will be hosting their Warm Hearts Winter Drive to benefit 58 homeless shelters that aid thousands of struggling families. All 150 branches are actively engaged in securing cash donation and new warm clothing.
The Good Feet Store in partnership with iHeartRadio, is collecting donations of socks and new or gently used shoes to benefit Transitions Projects from November 19th- December 31st. Transitions Projects deliver life-saving and life-changing assistance to some of Portland’s most vulnerable residents.
