As our guests wait for  transportation from the registration site to their overnight shelter site, they need you! Do you enjoy sharing hospitality? Active listening? Conversations with soon-to-be friends? If so, we need you! Each night we will share hospitality via presence, hot chocolate, and/or DECAF coffee, with our guests as they await transportation. Compassionate Winston-Salem community volunteers are welcomed and needed. If you, your congregation, college, or civic group would like to volunteer please sign up!
