On any given night, over 37,000 people struggle with homelessness in the Northwest. Columbia Bank's Warm Hearts Winter Drive is helping to keep our neighbors in need warm during the cold winter months by raising funds for more than 50 local shelters and aid organizations. Donate today and bring warmth to those who need it most this season. 100% of the funds raised remain in the community where it was donated.
The sight has become all too familiar in recent months: Tent cities, encampments, and people sleeping in their cars or in doorways. Homelessness is affecting the Northwest more than ever.
There are more than 37,000 people living on our streets any given night in the Northwest, including more than 10,000 families with children. The challenges faced by these individuals and families who find themselves struggling with homelessness increases exponentially during the cold winter months.
