Until January 1, the Hillsboro Police Department is collecting donations of new socks, gloves, hats, scarves, and hand warmers. The donated items will be forwarded to Project Homeless Connect for distribution. A bin is awaiting donations in the lobby of the Main Police Precinct at 250 SE 10th Avenue. This police station is on the east side of 10th Avenue between Washington and Baseline Streets and the lobby hours are 9:00 am to 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday. Please note, donated items must be new. Used items (no matter how gently used) won’t be distributed.
