Warming Center Volunteer Signups 2019-20

Winter (and hopefully rain) is right around the corner, and that means that on cold and wet nights there will be people who need shelter. So we are asking you – yes, you! – to volunteer to join a Hospitality Team. Sign up here!

There is nothing quite like the feeling of being able to do something concrete and tangible to help our community. Cooking a good meal and sharing it with our guests at the Warming Centers is now a part of our culture of caring here at the Unitarian Society. We need about 80 volunteers each year to make this happen!

You can sign up at here: https://forms.gle/d9ps8cK9Nma9ZuqZ6

We will organize our teams in a similar way again this year, with a team for each day of the week, and a Team Lead who will coordinate for their on-call night. An activation notice is sent out 48 hours in advance if the weather forecast calls for temperatures below 35 or at least a 50% chance of rain.

During the 2019-2020 Warming Center Season we are on call for the following days:

  • November 15-23
  • December 1-7
  • December 22-28   *We always activate on Christmas Eve, no matter the forecast.
  • January 26- February 1
  • February 23-29
  • March 8-14

When we are activated, the team in charge of that night is set in motion.  Teams are in charge of the following:

  1. Preparing a simple, hot and filling meal that can feed 60 people. (We’ve got recipes!)
  2. Serving the meal to our guests the night we are activated – we usually start serving around 6:15 p.m.
  3. Cleaning up the kitchen after activation.

We look forward to working with you in support of the Warming Centers this year! If you have any questions, please contact Mike Gorodezky, FWC Hospitality Team Coordinator: mgorodezky@cox.net

With Gratitude,

Rev. Julia & Michael Gorodezky
