If you can’t do it, maybe you can recruit someone else, over the age of 18, to cover a shift?

 

There will be a training for the shelter for those who are signed up and those just curious. Come see what it’s all about.

 

Also be aware that the snack schedule is very different this year. A red sheet by the sign up explains the differences.
