Coat and Blanket Drive Supports Neighbors in Need

Donate new or used coats, blankets, umbrellas, and sleeping bags for Jesuit's annual drive, Oct. 8-19! Items collected will be distributed to people experiencing homelessness in Portland via Jesuit's partner organization JOIN: Connecting the Street to a Home.

Since 1995, Jesuit families have collected thousands of cold-weather items to support neighbors in need through organizations like the Blanchet House, Rose Haven, and St. Andre Bessette Catholic Church.

Want to make a contribution? Please bring all winter-weather items to the collection box in the Gedrose Student Center at Jesuit.

Contact Christian Service Director Scott Powers at or 503-291-5463 for more information.
