Honoring National Hunger & Homelessness Awareness Week

by Kimanh Moreau | Nov 18, 2019


Last year, over 38,000 people were without shelter throughout the Northwest, and the cold winter season can be particularly hard for those who are living on the streets. November 16- 24, is National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week, which is the perfect opportunity to get involved and give back to your community and your neighbors in need.

Across the bank, we are joining together all November with group volunteer projects at local shelters, food banks and other aid organizations. Later this month, we will be kicking off our annual Warm Hearts Winter Drive to raise funds and cold weather supplies for our local partner shelters, so stay tuned for more ways to get involved with the Warm Hearts Winter Drive.

For now, whether it be through volunteering at your local shelter, participating in a food drive or making a donation to your favorite aid organization, you can help make a difference for those living on the streets. If you're looking for a great organization to support check out our list of Northwest organizations below who are hard at work providing shelter, safety and warmth to those living on the streets throughout Washington, Oregon and Idaho.
