In addition to the resources listed in our earlier post (see below), transportation is available for anyone who needs assistance getting to a warming center during the cold this week:
Individuals needing transportation to the Red Cross Severe Weather Warming Center can come to the Union Gospel Mission (3 NW 3rd Ave) between 8:30 PM and 9:30 PM for fareless access to TriMet busses on normal routes. Buses will drop riders at E Burnside and SE Sandy (two blocks from warming center site). Fareless access to TriMet buses is available only for those gathering at Union Gospel Mission. Red Cross staff will assist individuals requiring similar transportation assistance from the warming center to downtown Portland the following morning.
For additional 9information please call 211 by dialing 2-1-1 within the Portland metro area.
