St. John CWS Volunteers

St. John Lutheran Cold Weather Shelter 2018

As we prepare for this season of the birth of Christ, St. John is once again preparing to host the Cold Weather Shelter for the 10th time during the week of Christmas.  Our guests will be staying with us beginning on Monday, December 24th through December 31st. You can make a difference in the lives of families who have no home to call their own. This effort takes a lot of volunteers to make it work, so please use this website to sign up and feel free to share this link with co-workers, friends and family.  

If you want more detailed information regarding job duties and needs, please contact me at [email protected] or 410-796-7367 and I will send you a detailed handbook with in-depth descriptions for your review.
