Cold Night Shelter
One of the many advantages of living at the beaches is there are not very many cold nights. But, there are some most winters. These are times that make being homeless more difficult, even dangerous.
As the Mission House works daily to aid homeless people, they coordinate the Cold Night Shelter with local churches to address these residents needs during bad weather. When the temperatures are forecast to be below 35 degrees Fahrenheit or 40 degrees Fahrenheit with rain, they contact one of several local churches to host the Cold Night Shelter.
CPC is one of the volunteer churches. Following the call, blankets are pulled from storage in the fellowship hall and volunteers are rounded up to support our guests in 2-hour shifts throughout the night. Part of the volunteering includes preparing chili, so the guests can enjoy a warm meal with their warm, dry place to sleep.
If this sounds like a good idea to support to you, please contact the church at (904) 249-8698.
