White Bird Clinic holds annual Warm Drive during the holidays
LANE COUNTY, Ore. - The holiday season is in full swing, and while many are celebrating with love ones several homeless people in our area are getting the support they need with the help of White Bird Clinic.
The White Bird Clinic's annual Warm Drive helps those without a home to get the things they need to stay warm, dry and happy.
This means warm clothes, rain jackets, blankets and sleeping bags, items that are all pouring in, completely filling every inch of the clinic.
Head of outreach for White Bird Clinic, Chris Hecht, says as soon as they get donations, they're scooped up and back out the door.
Hecht says while the necessities are welcome, during the holiday it's nice to show the community cares in other ways as well.
“Even when you're kind of trying to make it through each day, some things that are not quite necessities but make your day a little bit nicer can mean a lot to people,” said Hecht.
The drive will go through the colder months ending around April.
If you would like to help, you can give your donations to the White Bird Clinic front desk on E. 12th street.
