Winter Hospitality Overflow (WHO) is devoted to helping those in need during winter’s coldest months. Guests are offered not only a warm place to sleep, but a hot shower, meals, and the welcome and warmth of a caring community (that's you!) working to address the most basic of human needs. This shelter operates from November 1 to March 31 each year and Holy Redeemer has been supporting this worthy cause for years. This year we are blessed to be able to serve the week of Thanksgiving.
If you have not volunteered with the WHO before, Be Not Afraid! You will have plenty of support and help. There are very clear instructions and checklists and many of our awesome parishioners have been doing this for years. Also the guests are super appreciative and helpful. You will get much more than you give. Please watch this video which will be a great start for you and show how easy it is to help: Training video
Once you sign up you will be contacted by Claire Yeh via E-mail-she will give you more information and make sure you are ready to serve!
