- From November through March we provide warming centers for people who are otherwise out in the cold. We need help at our Friday center. It is at Sojourner Covenant Church, 1101 Church St. We need help between 1 and 4 p.m.
- The Hospitality Center at St. Mark’s, 1509 Ridge, needs a doorkeeper from 9 to 11 on Tuesdays.
- The overnight “cold” shelter will be opening at St. Paul’s Church, 1004 Greenwood, when the temperature falls to 5 degrees. We need volunteers to set up cots in the evening, spend the night and do the laundry.
Contact Sue Murphy if you are interested in any of these great opportunities to serve.
