Many homeless men and women watch their birthday come and go like every other day of the year. No celebration. No cake. Certainly no gifts. Not even a “Happy Birthday” from a friend.
But this year, with the support and thoughtfulness of generous friends like you, our homeless guests will know they’re not forgotten!
On May 28th, we’ll throw a birthday party complete with gifts, cake, cards and colorful decorations, and we want YOU to be a part of the celebration! Help by sending a birthday card with an encouraging note to let a hurting person know you care. You can also include a donation to provide meals and help cover the cost of the event.
Here’s what you can do:
- Write a message in a store-bought or homemade card. You can download our birthday card template to print.
- Please don’t include any personal information other than your first name.
- We encourage you to include a donation to Portland Rescue Mission with your card. A gift as small as $10 provides 6 hot, nutritious meals. You can also make an online donation.
- Place the card in an envelope and mail to:
