SCPC Site Volunteers
State College Presbyterian Church is committed to hosting Out of the Cold's overnight shelter for about 25 guests from June 27 through the night of July 10. Nightly volunteer hours will be 7:45 to 10pm, and guest check-in will begin at 8pm. Morning cleanup hosts will arrive at 7:45am. Ovenight SCPC voluntees are not needed, as overnight staffing will be provided by Out of the Cold staff.
We will need some special help outside of those hours just twice - for setting up and getting ready for the first night, and loading out cots and final cleanup after the last night. Specific openings are below.
VOLUNTEER NEEDS (OOTC staff will also be onsite)
Morning cleanup hosts (2): Arrive at 7:45am to tidy the social hall and clean 3 lower floor restrooms so that they are ready for the day, and to welcome guests again in the evening, without putting any extra buden on our excellent building staff. Finished by 8:30am.
Dinner Providers: Bring dinner for 25 guests at 7:45pm each night. This (perhaps in combination with evening hosting) is an excellent way for small groups to serve - you can divvy up the dinner preperation amongst you! If you are a small group signing up, simply have the person who will serve as your small-group's OOTC volunteer coordinator sign up for both slots, and mention the name of the group in the "comments". Kitchen door will be open.
If you are signing up for as a small group, and your group plans to both provide inner and serve as evening hosts, please sign up in both places!
Evening Hosts (2+): Arrive at 7:45pm to help set up and serve dinner, and visit with guests. Pack and store dinnes for guests who will arrive late from work. Dinner cleanup. Kitchen door will be open.
Breakfast Supplies for two days: Evening drop-off of breakfast items such as coffee creamer, a gallon each of milk and OJ, and some portable items like frozen breakfasts sandwiches, breakfast bars, utensil free yogurts like GoGurt, and softer, self-contained fruits like bananas and orangs. 7:45pm (this sign up will open after we have evenings covered). If your small group would like to cover breakfasts, too, that's great! Just make a note in the "comments" section.
Load-in/Load-out volunteers: These volunteers will serve at the beginning and end of the stay to help load OOTC gear like lightweight cots and bedding/blankets from the truck to create a welcoming and functional setup in our spaces, and then load it back out again at the end. Unload truck and set up will take place Monday June 27, 8:30 - 9:30am. 3 volunteers are needed. Clean up and loading the truck will happen Monday July 11, 7:30 - 8:30am. 4 volunteers are needed.
