Cold Night Shelter for the Homeless

 

Many resources are falling into place for the opening of our Cold Night Shelter on the first night that the temperature in Pinellas County drops below 40 degrees. It is almost as though it is supposed to happen. Between Trinity and Paradise Lutheran Church in Treasure Island we have an ample supply of volunteers who are willing to provide food or to staff the shelter for the night. We received a donation of thirty sleeping mats at no expense to the church and we are collecting blankets for our guests to use. If you have gently used blankets or adult games (decks of cards, chess, checkers, Backgammon, Scrabble, etc) to donate we would be happy to receive them. An orientation meeting for all volunteers will be held during the first two weeks of November and will be further publicized when the date has been set.

Please contact either Alan Due or Doug Forcino if you have questions or would like to volunteer or contribute to the shelter ministry. Thank you.
