Winter Warming Project


Help keep the whole community warm!

Winter Warming gathers donations of new, handmade items – from baby booties, shawls, sweaters, and lap blankets, to socks, mitts, hats, and scarves. Then we distribute them to children and families, youths, adults, singles and seniors, anyone who needs a hand staying warm as the seasons change and the weather turns cold.

This community-compassion program links creativity with neighbors in need. If you knit, sew, or crochet, your talents can protect people from the cold this winter. Contact us to get involved! 

Winter Warming Donation Baskets will be ready to receive new handcrafted items November 1 – January 2 at New Seasons Markets, Albina Community Bank branches, and several local businesses. Here's where you can find us:
