Homeless Shelter Needs Volunteers

By Bethany Carlson

HomelessThe men’s seasonal homeless shelter needs volunteers, reports organizer Gina Vee.

Volunteers will work with paid staff and can help in several ways: Greeters help with registration and bag check from 6:30 PM to 11:00 PM. Soup is needed for 40 people. The overnight volunteer sleeps in a separate area from 11:00 PM to 7:00 AM, and is only awakened if there is an emergency.

Vee says that fraternity members have often helped out, but there is a lack of volunteers over the Thanksgiving and Christmas breaks.
