Egan Warming Centers – Volunteers Needed

The Egan Warming Centers provide warm, safe places to sleep for people who are experiencing homelessness on nights when the temperature drops to 30 degrees or below. Tonight – Tuesday, December 12 – will be the 9th night in a row that Egan has activated. The Centers rely heavily on volunteers, so long activations can make it challenging to maintain adequate staffing and ensure that the Centers can stay open. There are different roles to fill, from kitchen crew and safety to general staffing support and helping with donations. A New Volunteer Orientation & Training will take place next Tuesday, December 19, at 6 pm, at First Christian Church, 1166 Oak St. More information can be found at www.eganwarmingcenter.com.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
