Providing for the homeless and underserved in our community is a priority at Our Redeemer Lutheran Church. With winter looming, the middle and high school youth of ORLC assembled and delivered winter care kits to the Blanchet House in Portland.
Many generous Santas this Christmas blessed the children of the Community Transitional School of Portland (CTS) with Christmas gifts on Christmas morning. All 62 students received two or more gifts from their 'wish' list and, additionally, 14 staff members of CTS were treated to small gifts.

The students of this school daily live with homelessness and a myriad of resulting issues. This school reaches out into the community to make sure that education doesn’t become one more thing that these kids learn to do without.
