January is not the time to sleep outdoors in Michigan! First Pres opens its doors once again from January 6 - 20, 2014, to provide sleeping space for up to 30 men directed here by the Shelter Association. The Rotating Shelter provides temporary housing for the overflow population from the Delonis Center. Last winter more than 100 First Pres volunteers of all ages offered hospitality, made new friends within the First Pres and street community, and put words into action.
First Pres offers hospitality as much as it offers shelter. We are looking for evening and overnight hosts each night, and weekend evening and morning drivers. In addition, we need food/snacks, and donations of hats, gloves, socks, and gently-used coats. If you can listen, learn, and make new friends, please sign up to volunteer! We also welcome First Pres groups whose members would like to serve together or host a specific night. Veteran volunteers will be present to help orientate others. Join this dedicated group who give of their time and also receive so much from our guests.
