Thursday Warming Shelter
Due to Covid-19 the plans for the Thursday Night Warming Shelter are currently in limbo. Various local organizations are trying to address the need for warming shelters and an overnight shelter in our community this winter.
An EVERYBODY EATS grant was written and approved to provide financial support for local food providers and food for those in need of meals and has been extended through the end of June. Under this grant UCM 30 entrees on Thursday nights will be distributed to local unhoused individuals. Meals will be prepared by area caterers and restaurants. The Warming Shelter volunteers will pack bags with flatware, desserts, drinks, fruit and snacks to go with the entrees.
Because of Covid-19 only a few volunteers will be needed on Thursdays and strict safety protocols are being followed. You can support this effort by contacting Peter Thoms for donations of home baked desserts, snacks, fruit, drinks, and financial support would all be greatly appreciated
