As UUCV will be hosting the family shelter in May, which is comprised of women and children, only women may volunteer to stay overnight with the guests. However, we could use a few – or more – good men to serve as hosts. Hosts unlock the church, run through a check-list of preparatory tasks and orient the overnight volunteer to the building. The overnight volunteer checks in the guests at 8:30; the host has no formal duties related to the guests, although most hosts enjoy getting to know our neighbors better. The host locks the outside door at 10:00 pm and is finished. If you’re a morning person, volunteers are needed on Saturday and Sunday mornings to empty the trash and restock the bathrooms. Contact June Hoch at 241-3034 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sunday, April 23, at noon, Ray Shaull, Carlisle CARES Program Coordinator, will meet with host volunteers and other interested members in the dining room. A pizza lunch will be provided.
