How to help:

Support The Portland Mercury

The city and county are seeking volunteers to help staff the cooling centers during the heatwave. Volunteers can sign up for shifts at both indoor and outdoor cooling spaces here. Volunteers under 18 years old must be accompanied by an adult.

Anyone can email the Joint Office of Homeless Services (JOHS) to make an appointment to pick up water and personal protective equipment from the office's downtown warehouse for distribution as well.

Lastly, check in on your housed and unhoused neighbors to make sure they have the resources they need to get through another heatwave.
