2018-2019 EWC Season ~ In Action!
Hello Amazing Supporters!

The EWC has been open 18 nights this season, tonight is #19 . We have had 43 individual guests and our local guests that return often providing 119 nights of shelter.


Thanks for your teamwork on the success of this grass-roots community effort!

Warmth & Thanks, Cathie

EWC Coordinator
It's looking like we may have a FULL week of bitter cold nights. In addition to the overnight there are a couple mornings we need volunteer help to extend the hours until 1 0am when temps get up to 15 degrees.

VOLUNTEER's are the key
to being able to open on the most severe weather nights and provide the basic necessities our guests need.

If you have volunteered in the past but have not be receiving the Volunteer needed emails through Sign Up Genius, please let me know! I want to make sure everyone interested in volunteering, even a couple times this season is receiving these requests! We need you all ;)
