Overnight Warming Shelter at The Grove — Volunteers and other assistance needed

Emergency weather shelter update for Wednesday, Dec. 21.
We can’t open unless we have enough volunteers in place. As of 7 p.m. Tuesday, the shelter is unable to open due to a lack of volunteers.
We are still looking for one overnight host who can stay from 5 pm to 8 am. We want to find a volunteer or two who can be there from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. tomorrow night. We’re also looking for dinner for 25 people and the drop-off time for that would ideally be 5:15 pm tomorrow evening. Thank-you.
MASKS ARE MANDATORY and we will provide them.
Shelter Opening Wednesday, December 21
An emergency severe weather shelter will be open Wednesday, December 21, at 5 p.m. at The Grove, located at 1195 E Main Street #2271.
The doors will open at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 21, and the doors will close for the night at 9 p.m. with lights out at 10 p.m. The Shelter will close on Thursday morning, Dec. 22 at 8 a.m. This is a no-frills shelter, meaning individuals should plan on providing their own bedding.
