Cold Weather Shelter 2021

Monday, February 8, through Sunday, February 14, 2021

The Cold Weather Shelter is different this year! The guests will be in rooms at the Extended Stay America Hotel in Columbia for the entire 17 weeks. From February 8th through the 14th, our church is responsible for providing 2 evening volunteers (any gender) to be there from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. and for paying for meals and laundry. There will be a Grassroots Staff person there also. Everyone (guests, volunteers, and staff) are required to wear masks and practice social distancing. We will likely have limited contact with the guests. However, I suggest that church volunteers be those who are not at high risk of complications from COVID. If you are interested in being an evening volunteer, SIGN UP HERE, or contact Church Administrator, fpcadmin@firstpreshc.org

Meals will be catered by Absolutely Perfect Catering who has done a fantastic job with Feed Howard County. Our church needs to contribute about $3000 to cover the meals and laundry for the week for 25-30 guests. Click here to donate on PayPal or send a check marked with “CWS” to the church.
