St Paul’s Shelter Volunteers
125 Spruce St, Annville, PA 17003
St. Paul the Apostle church will be hosting the Fresh Start (Providing Emergency Shelter) program from the evening of December 16th till December 30th, 2019.
Each evening (8:15 pm to 9:45 pm) we will need four volunteers for check-in. Both genders should be represented, so that a man is doing the security check for the male guests, and a woman for the female guests. We will also have a volunteer taking attendance and a couple of volunteers serving snacks. For the overnight shift (9:00 pm to 7:30 am) we will need two volunteers, again one of each gender. Overnight volunteers will each have a private sleeping area, air mattress will be provided. (Please bring your own pillow and sleeping bag or blanket.)
You should sign up for only one job per shift, but you are welcome to sign up for both the evening and overnight shifts. (For example, you cannot be both a check-in clerk and a food prep volunteer on the same night, but you can be both a check-in clerk and an overnight volunteer on the same night.)
We recommend that you arrive about fifteen minutes early for your shift, particularly if this is your first time.
If you are unable to make one of the shifts you have signed up for, please try to trade with another volunteer.
If the LCCM emergency shelter coordinator is not present (as she is for most check-in times), she is only a phone call away and will deal with any problems you don't feel comfortable handling. The guests are familiar with the rules and procedures of the Fresh Start program, and are generally extremely cooperative and grateful.
Thank you for giving your time to help us provide our neighbors with a warm, safe place to sleep during the coldest time of the year.
