Description

Volunteers NEEDED for Winter Shelters in Ashland!

If the world seems cold to you, kindle fires to warm it.” ~Lucy Larcom

Last winter, more than 120 community volunteers provided over 31,000 hours and 112 nights of shelter serving more than 1,000 guests. Beginning mid-November and continuing through mid-April, “no frills” overnight winter shelters will be offered in Ashland… 7 nights per week (usually 7:30pm-8:00am). We need more volunteers for:

1 Hour 7:00am-8:00am Clean up crew

2 Hours 7:30pm-9:30pm Site greeters, listeners, helpers

12.5 Hours 7:30pm-8:00am Hosts to sleep over (2 per night)

During the orientation, you will discover more about the various volunteer roles.
