2019-2020 EWC Season is in Motion!
Hello Amazing Supporters ,

Thanks to all who made themselves available for ON THE JOB Orientations the end of October when we OPENED for our first 2 nights this season! We had 6 guests who were very grateful for a place to share meals and a couple warm nights of sleep and support with other services. We had a good time!

Looking clear the next week, but maybe some snow or weather triggered nights the end of the month? Check it: What Open Snow is suggesting?!
Projects Going On ~ Help Needed
New fundraising idea:
Is there a team out there willing to create an Online Auction?
Needed: A couple people willing to organize this fundraiser. Plus a group of people willing to connect with local ski resorts, hotels, businesses to seek support of this 2019-2020 season. The donated items, gift certificates, services ... can be added to an online auction platform to generate community financial support for this season #5.

Welcome to the EWC Annex to the for Season #5
In Process: Stay tuned for more ways to help, This will be a space where our guest liaison, Joanne can stay during the season when working, but "off duty". And will allow us to do laundry on sight and offer shower services when guests have medical needs and sufficient volunteers to offer showers!

VOLUNTEER's at the center are key to being able to open on the most severe weather nights and provide the basic necessities our guests need. Especially when we start having long stretches of OPEN nights
