Hello friends!

It’s official, FALL is here! Pumpkins are everywhere – at the grocery store, on your doorstep, on your plate and in your cup!!! Around BPM, it’s time to focus on our next GREAT BIG THANKSGIVING BASKET GIVE AWAY! It’s one of our favorite one day events we do for our beautiful BTown Kids families.

Every year, BPM comes along side literally hundreds people by providing a thanksgiving meal in a basket to over 150 BTown Kids families! Our simple desire is to eliminate the barrier that poverty places before families, who want to bring those they love around the table, to share a meal, to encourage togetherness, oneness and wholeness. As we do this, we are providing a nutritious, soul reaching meal to up to 1000 folks in the margin, including close to 800 children.

We have wonderful partners who come along side every year, but there are still many ways to be involved…

We would love to provide a volunteer opportunity for you on NOVEMBER 18, from 9:30AM-2PM, to put together and deliver these amazing gifts.

Maybe you can not join us, but you may want to help provide a basket for a family – full baskets cost about $80 to complete.

Or maybe you would like to put a basket together but would like us to deliver it for you…

Or maybe, you just want to help us fulfill one element for each basket – maybe the laundry hamper, or the table centerpiece…

You can do this or any of the above by clicking on this link:

Once we hear from you, we’ll send more information your way!

Happy Thanksgiving Season, and lest we forget…

We love Portland!

We don’t love having to cancel Night Strike…

Unfortunately, when the Navy ships are in, our sweet little space is used up and unavailable for our services.

We will be suspending Night Strike services for JUNE 1.

On JUNE 8, we will be gathering and performing walk abouts – passing out sandwiches and drinks to those who may need it. You are welcome to join us.

Please reach out if you plan to attend June 8 – email us at

BPM focuses on Mobilization, Relief, & Transformation for populations in the margins, Because People Matter.
