About Sunshine Division
Since 1923, Sunshine Division has provided free emergency food and clothing to families and individuals in times of crisis. This December marks 98 years that Sunshine Division, Portland Police Bureau members, and volunteers from the community will home deliver holiday food boxes. This year, 2,500 holiday food boxes will be home-delivered to families in need via Sunshine Division’s emergency food delivery program, and a total of 15,000 boxes will be distributed in November and December across the Portland metro area.
Since launching their expanded emergency food delivery program in April, with the help of the Portland Police Bureau and numerous local supporters, Sunshine Division has provided more than 4 MILLION meals to over 150,000 households through their two food pantries, home deliveries, and bulk food distribution network. In addition to the traditional holiday home delivery program, Sunshine Division’s new delivery model will help them meet the need during what they anticipate will be an extraordinarily challenging holiday season for thousands of local families.
Sunshine Division offers food assistance six days a week at their N. Thompson location, five days a week at their SE Stark location, and 24-hour food assistance through their partnership with the Portland Police Bureau, who store Sunshine Division food boxes at each police precinct to be dispatched at any time.
Sunshine Division also provides no-cost, bulk food and food boxes to 20+ local hunger relief non-profits serving Clark, Clackamas, Washington, and Multnomah counties. In addition to food relief, they offer new and gently-used clothing in their on-site clothing rooms and fund new school clothes for low-income children through their Izzy’s Kid’s program which pairs a Portland police officer with a child for a one-on-one shopping experience.
