Our Current Campaigns
Late in the evening of September 13th, a devastating fire broke out in downtown Oxford that destroyed multiple businesses and homes, displacing over 90 people. Since those early morning hours, SILO staff, board members and volunteers have been working tirelessly to support those who lost everything. SILO mobilized immediately, purchasing new clothes for all of the residents, filling their immediate needs. Now our focus shifts to finding affordable housing for each household and helping them settle into their new (empty) homes.
If you would like to support SILO in continuing this work, please click here to donate.
If you would like to donate directly to those affected by the fire, please indicate that on the note line of your gift.
In Kind Gifts
Looking to give to SILO in an unconventional way?
Below is a list of supplies we use often if you’d like to make a donation:
- Birthday, anniversary, get well, sympathy and seasonal cards
- Craft supplies, especially markers, scissors, tape and glue
- Paper products for meals (plates, utensils, napkins, cups, etc)
- Small gifts to give to SILO friends for their birthday, home warming or new baby (plants, sweets, new blankets, spa toiletries)
- Gift cards for gas. We often help friends get to doctor appointments, the laundromat and grocery store. Gas gift cards help keep the expenses low.
- Gift cards to local restaurants. We occasionally take a SILO friend out for lunch to get to know them or to appreciate the hard work they have offered. Sometimes we take a local homeless person out to eat so they can get a warm meal.
- Tools for home repairs including: pressure washer, lawn mower and a weed eater.
