Sunday Night Dinner at the Sanctuary Shelter

Sanctuary Shelter

Sanctuary Shelter is one of the emergency shelters run by Episcopal Community Services (ECS). This shelter is a bit smaller than Next Door Shelter but does just as much good! In addition to serving two meals a day to their clients, Sanctuary Shelter offers various in house activities including gardening and art groups. They have an awesome community garden located in the parking lot right out side the kitchen. We will be serving a dinner shift that starts at 6:15 p.m. We will also help with set up and clean up. Please wear close toed shoes, pants, and shirts with sleeves and PLEASE arrive at 6:15 p.m. We get the ball rolling fairly quickly and it helps if we are all there at the same time. Enter through the main door on 8th (not through the kitchen!), sign in on the volunteer iPad, and head to the dining room/kitchen! Thank you everyone for your continued support in supplying ECS with much needed helping hands!
