My heart goes out for Ruthi Radar and all of the other regular homeless folks that not only depend on The Warming Place when its extremely COLD but also the light breakfasts and the meals prepared and served fri/sat/sun.... I was a volunteer for a 12 hr shift until recently when I found a part time job. That experience was one of the most humbling things I have had and the men I met and talked with that night were so polite, grateful and they all shoed up right at 7pm when we open the doors. Something PERMANENT has to be provided in our community for those in need of our help!! Go outside on a 35 degree night and sit on your porch for 30-45 minutes out in the elements, ask yourself as the temps did late in the night, could you keep warm enough to sleep bundled up with everything you own?? We need to do MORE!!!!

UM curly,,, you can not purchase ALCOHOL with the Oregon food card nor can you even purchase hot deli foods and so many other items you refer to as abusing the system. please get your facts straight and don't rely on the media for them!! If you do see someone and im talking about the STORE not the person violating this Or trail card then TURN them in to the State office.... there is a very small amount of abuse compared to the overall need for people to have this help.... BTW.. How about those fat rich senators who have direct FARM SUBSIDIES going in to their own pockets??? go ahead and use SNOPES, its the truth!! while they want to cut out food from millions including our VETERANS they fill their greedy pockets....
