Emergency Warming Center Program Volunteers Needed

Our church is partnering with the First Congregational UCC of Downers Grove to offer an emergency warming center this winter for our unsheltered neighbors when temperatures dip dangerously low. We will open our doors for one night per week at our church and another night at First Congregational United Church of Christ. Help is needed to set up these temporary centers, greet guests for the evening, stay overnight for a shift to monitor a room of sleeping people, clean up in the morning, and load up the materials for storage.
