Fairfax UMC Hypothermia Shelter 2019
Happy New Year everyone! Thank you again for your support for the 2018 Hypothermia Shelter at FUMC! It is that time again and FUMC will be hosting the 2019 Hypothermia Shelter during the week of Sunday, February 24th through Sunday March 3rd.
Welcome to the Sign Up Genius for Hypothermia Shelter 2019. There are sign up opportunities for adults (ages 18 and up) to serve as an evening volunteer, an overnight volunteer and a morning volunteer.
There are also opportunities for groups to provide and serve an evening meal for approximately 45-50 people. In addition, we need breakfast casseroles and food for the same number of guests. Volunteers will help with food prep, serving meals and clean up. Importantly, we have the opportunity to be in fellowship with our brothers and sisters in need and share our time with them before, during and after meals.
We also need donated items including clothing and snack donations. For clothing, all types are appreciated and especially new men's and women's undergarments, socks and warm clothing.
Let me know if your group or Sunday school class plans to take up a collection for any of these items. We will provide funding for public transportation and gas cards for our guests.
Whatever the weather, we plan to provide a loving, warm, and safe environment for our brothers and sisters in need and service through our Lord Jesus Christ!
