Shelter needs volunteers

Overnight temperatures are expected to get down into the mid-30s.

Wondering what you can do to help others? Here’s an opportunity.

The temporary cold weather shelter needs volunteers.

“With temperatures forecasted to fall below 35 degrees overnight according to the National Weather Service volunteers are needed,” says a release from Coastal Community Action Program. “Cold weather shelter operations are contingent on having confirmed volunteers for all necessary shifts.”

The help you provide could save a life.

“The purpose of the shelter is survival of those who are unhoused and for that reason shelter access is not contingent on sobriety or participation in services of any kind. It will serve adults 18 and over, of all genders, as space and volunteer capacity allows. Shelter rules will be limited and focused on safety for guests and volunteers,” the release states.

Please help them if you can.

Shelter operations for future dates will be contingent on confirmed adequate volunteers.
