We are more than halfway through the Overflow Shelter season!
You all have been amazing as you have stepped up to make sure that all of our volunteer roles are covered each night. [perfectpullquote align=”right” cite=”” link=”” color=”” class=”” size=”21″] Children have decorated place-mats and snack bags to bring cheer to our guests.[/perfectpullquote]
Some of you come weekly to help with check-in, and a few of you overnight at least once a week. One of you wakes up early two mornings a week to drive our guests back downtown, while another helps with nighttime transportation. A few of you with organizational skills have gifted the shelter with some order. Our children and youth have help clean and reset the shelter around (and as a part of) their activities. Children have decorated place-mats and snack bags to bring cheer to our guests. THANK YOU ALL!!! Our overflow shelter simply could not operate without all of our volunteers sharing their time and talents with our guests.

If you’ve missed out on this important ministry of our church this winter–there is still time left to serve! You can sign up and learn more.
If you’d like to give in other ways, we are always in need of women’s underwear (sizes 6-10) and financial donations to cover costs like bus passes and prescription medications for our guests. If you have a special talent you can share, or you’re not quite sure how you can be a part of this ministry of hospitality–please talk to me (firstname.lastname@example.org). There is a place for all at the Overflow Shelter–and you are no exception!
Thanks for your faithfulness in serving WSNC’s most vulnerable women each night,
Katie Bryant, Minister of Children & Outreach at St. Timothy’s Episcopal Church
