Overnight volunteers needed at shelter

By
From page A6 | January 04, 2013 |

Overnight volunteers are needed at the Interfaith Rotating Winter Shelter in Davis. This duty is particularly suited to students who can study, read or otherwise quietly occupy themselves. Singles and couples, even groups, are strongly urged to join. You will not be alone, since someone remains awake at all times. Training is provided, and a supervisor from the host site congregation is present at the shelter.

After meals, a movie and lights out at 10 p.m., there is really little to do beyond listening to people snore and seeing to it that no one goes out for a smoke break after lights out. Guests are bone-tired by now. Remember what their days are like, and you see what I mean.

Please volunteer as an overnight volunteer; not everyone can be away from their families during these hours. You can volunteer for as many or as few nights as you like. To sign up, visit www.interfaith-shelter.org.
