Interfaith Action Overnight Shelter

by | Nov 23, 2022

FUMC will be hosting the Interfaith Action Emergency Shelter for 3 weeks from 12/25/22 to 1/15/23 as one of 9 faith communities involved this year.

Interfaith Action provides the 2 paid staff members each night as well as volunteers.  Our congregation needs volunteers to serve as “hosts” for each morning and evening during our 3 weeks.  The morning shift is from 6-7 AM and involves helping the staff and volunteers with clean-up as the guests exit the building.  The PM shift is from 7:55-9:30 PM when our host will let the staff/volunteers into the building starting at 8 PM and help with set-up as guests arrive starting at 9.  The City is once again requiring that all participants be masked.

If you haven’t volunteered for the Interfaith Shelter in past years, please know that there are not a lot of demands on our hosts given the staffing provided by Interfaith.  Please consider giving some time for this important effort by taking one or more slots on the Sign-Up Genius which can be found here: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/60B0D4AACAE2AA75-fumc.   And please contact Craig Chambers at cdc7976@gmail.com with any questions.  Craig will be in touch with volunteers to provide further details and will be happy to give quick training to anyone who needs an initial overview or refresher. (With the emphasis on QUICK because there truly is not much to it!)

Thank you!!
