Women of Vision is excited to partner with World Vision on a new project this season, World Vision Emergency Response. Last year, World Vision responded to 87 emergencies in several different countries, including Ukraine, and World Vision remains in these countries over the long term to establish permanent housing, sustainable clean water, food security, access to quality education, and restore children's sense of security. An example of this is World Vision's ongoing work with Syrian Refugees for over 10 years.
Just as Women of Vision partners with World Vision in their work, Women of Vision (through Women of Vision in Action) takes part in helping nonprofits in our community who are working long term to assist the poor to better their lives and know Jesus.
Welcome to our October Project! We will be working as a 15-person team at the Union Gospel Mission Thrift Store located at 11611 SW Pacific Hwy, Tigard, OR 97223, on Saturday, October 22nd from 10:00 to 12:30. Volunteers may take part in sorting and stocking donations, cleaning areas of the store, painting, etc., depending on the needs.
The UGM Thrift Store is run entirely by residents in the LifeChange recovery community, and all proceeds from the store come back to fund LifeChange so that UGM is able to offer recovery free of charge to those who need it. A new women's LifeChange Center is being built in Portland. If you would like to see what it will look like go to this link https://cidainc.com/projects/union-gospel-mission-womens-lifechange-center/. To learn more about Union Gospel Mission go to their website at https://ugmportland.org/. There is a video on this page that shows the Women's LifeChange Program.
Before our project date, you will be receiving a reminder email with a volunteer waiver form attached to fill out and bring with you to the Thrift Store. Optional: Lunch afterwards. If you sign up and are unable to serve for whatever reason, please let us know asap so we can find someone else to fill your spot.
We are looking forward to being together in person again, and loving on and serving our neighbors in need in the name of Jesus. We would love for you to join us.
