Day Of Dignity 2017
Day of Dignity 2017 was held in the North Park Block B (Park Of the Elephant) on September 10th.
This year we had these organizations as partners:
- Oregon Islamic Chaplain Organization (OICO)
- Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic Church
- UNITE people - Japanese American Citizen League
- Shafa Clinic
- William Temple House
- Village Coalition
- Outside In Agency
- Jewish Family and Child Services (JFCS)
- Relay Resources
- Multnomah Health Dept
- Oregon Food Bank
- Street Roots
- Potluck In the Park
- Living Hope International
- Sesame Donuts
Our partnership was our way in showcasing true American spirit
in working together for a better America, united for the greater cause of humanity. We had about 540 homeless served with food;
thermal socks; hoodies; back packs; sweat pants;
First aid kits; school kits; and hygiene kits. In addition, resource information; health counselors and barbers for
haircuts were made available.
Our local youth from 12-18 years of age provided their time and services with manning booths, collecting information on the homeless conditions
and distributing the supplies. For our youth, this is an excellent way to gain awareness and respect for the human condition.
We want to groom our youth to take more leadership roles with community well-being
activities and to pass the baton over to the next generation.
