Night Strike is a community gathering that mobilizes volunteerism/service, meets felt needs, and develops relationships that transforms lives. It is a unique opportunity for people to spend time under the Burnside Bridge every Thursday night to love people because people matter. It is an opportunity for members of Portland’s homeless community to hang out, enjoy a hot meal, receive a free haircut or shave, have their feet washed and have their old shoes/clothes/sleeping bags replaced. It is also a chance for you to come down and share in the experience, help serve the needs of the homeless in our community, and more importantly, invest in lives and build relationships with the people you meet.
Begin 7:00 pm Thursday nights
Meet at Liberation Street Church
214 W Burnside St
