PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

The Community Warehouse is seeking donations of dining tables, blankets and pots and pans for families transitioning into new homes for the holidays.

The Community Warehouse works in partnership with nearly 200 agencies throughout Portland to provide basic household items and furniture to families in need.

Each week, social services agencies bring 50 families to the Community Warehouse to "turn their empty housing into homes."

Program Director Erik Heise said after serving 65 families last week, the Community Warehouse furniture floor is nearly empty.

"We are doing our best to take care of families before Thanksgiving, but we can't do it without strong support from our community," Heise said.

Donations can be dropped off in Portland at 3969 N.E. Martin Luther King Junior Boulevard or in Tualatin at 8380 Nyberg Street. Drop-off centers are open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

For information about pickup service, call 503-235-8786 or go to communitywarehouse.org.
