United Way christens shower trailer

United Way of the Mid-Willamette Valley will host a ribbon-cutting event on Tuesday, July 30, at 5:30 p.m. to launch its Mobile Shower Trailer. 

The local homelessness crisis has long been a priority issue for leaders. With committed community partners, United Way is working to change the tide with real solutions and tangible projects. 

The 22-foot long trailer has three private bathroom stalls that will give community members access to a hot shower, clean clothes and connections to additional services.

Mid-Willamette Valley Community Action Agency will be managing the day-to-day services and taking this valuable resource to key urban and rural areas.

“One of our key focus areas is to address this urgent problem of homelessness and housing affordability. United Way is working together with our area service providers to produce results that address this issue,” said United Way Executive Director, Ron Hays.
