Help for displaced employees

Offers of help from ODFW employees
September 15, 2020

This page includes offers of help and resources from ODFW employees for those who have had to evacuate their homes due to wildfire danger.

During these unprecedented times, and at the request of ODFW staff, the department has developed this forum to connect displaced staff with staff offering resources. The resources offered on this forum are voluntary, personal in nature, and in no way requested or authorized by the department. We are happy to connect staff during these challenging times, but please use care when posting to this forum and in partnering on use of resources offered.

ODFW is not responsible for the exchange of resources between employees. Participation on this forum must be done on personal time and state resources should not be used for the donations.

Items commonly needed in emergency situations: (Due to COVID-19, it is best if items offered are new.)

  • Cleaning supplies
  • Pillows/blankets
  • Shampoo, lotion, soap
  • Toothbrushes/toothpaste
  • Prepackaged food items (granola bars, etc)
  • Kitchen-ware
  • Clothing

To post an offer/request

Send it to ODFW.Web@coho2.dfw.state.or.us. Put “Resource Offer/Request” in the subject line. Your message should include what you are offering and how ODFW staff in need can contact you. The Web Team will post it.
