Severe Weather Shelter Volunteer Meeting

The weather is getting cold once again, so United Way of SJC and other supporters are pleased to respond to you, the town of Friday Harbor, with the “Out of the Cold” Severe Weather Shelter Program, offering temporary shelter for families and individuals during our coldest months.  The shelter will operate on days of severe weather from November 23rd, 2019, through March 7th, 2020.

To learn more, you are invited to attend an Info Session and Meet-Up, October 12th, from 9am-11am, at Friday Harbor Atelier*. Coffee, pastries, snacks! It’s time to build a strong team for another season of helping islanders! 

In its third year, this program is funded through your generous donations, and staffed by local volunteers willing to help out whenever someone calls in need of shelter from the cold. No prior experience is required, and volunteers receive a generous stipend for every night they participate (volunteers will be trained, and must submit to a background check).

If you are interested, please show up! Please email outofthecoldsji@gmail.com to RSVP. You can also join our Facebook Group for regular updates!

And thank you from United Way of SJC.

*The Atelier is located where West Marine used to be, next to the bowling alley in Friday Harbor.
