KATU News is teaming up with the Portland Rescue Mission Thursday to provide “hope for the holidays” to members of our community in need.

Just $9 a month can provide a homeless man or woman with everything he or she needs to gain a foothold in a new life. That includes a hearty meal, a hot shower, a safe night’s rest, clean clothes, access to recovery programs, employment and housing resources and compassionate friendships.

The telethon will run from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. Call 1-800 346-9256 to help those in need.

You can also donate at www.PortlandRescueMission.org/KATU

An estimated 16,000 people are dealing with hunger and homelessness in the Portland area.

The Portland Rescue Mission has programs that provide shelter, food and hope to those in need.
