Cold Night Shelter for the Homeless

 

We have been making preparations for opening a cold night shelter at Trinity on nights on which the low temperature is forecasted to be 40 degrees F or below.   When we open we will be one of 8 cold night shelters in Pinellas County, and the only church in downtown St Pete that operates a shelter. We have gathered about 80 donated blankets, and we have received donations of 30 sleeping mats and three storage units which are being put to good use in the corner room at the top of the stairs in the third floor fellowship hall. We have held orientation meetings and conducted training for about 25 people but we could always use more volunteers, so if you are interested in learning more about the nuts and bolts of this ministry, please be on the lookout for the next orientation meeting in early January. Just  come to  learn about it to see if it might be something you would like to do. No obligation unless you want to be part of it after you learn  more about it.
Although we have many things in place, we still have important items to address (specifically insurance questions) prior to operating as  part of the Pinellas Cold Night System. We will let you know when our shelter is operational.

Want to Help?

We can always use more volunteers!
