Cold Night Shelter
When the EOC determines it is cold enough to open shelters in our area, we work together with area churches to provide volunteers to work at one of the shelters in our area. The shelter is located at Community Congregational Church, 6533 Circle Blvd., New Port Richey. The shelter opens at 6 PM and closes at 7 AM. We are continually looking for additional volunteers to help with the cold night shelters.
Food for the Cold Weather Shelter - Volunteers are needed to make sandwiches and other light refreshments that will be served at the cold weather shelter. One to two day notice would be given on when the food is needed.
Shift 1: 5:30 PM - 9:00 PM During this shift, volunteers assist with check in of the guests, collect belongings, hand out mats and blankets, and prepare food and beverages.
Shift 2: 9:00 PM -12:30 AM During this shift, the volunteers will continue to assist guests as they check in and get settled for the evening. The doors close at 11:00 PM. Lights out at 11 PM.
Shift 3: 12:30 AM - 4:00 AM During this shift, volunteers will monitor the room and assist guests as needed during the night.
Shift 4: 4:00 AM - 7:30 AM During this shift, volunteers will prepare for breakfast food and beverages. All mats must be sanitized and the building cleaned before leaving. All guests must leave by 7:00 AM.
