Here is your opportunity to make a difference in the homeless issue in our community.
The city is asking for volunteers as it prepares for the semi-annual ‘point in time’ homeless population head count where twice a year volunteers are needed to spend the day going around the city counting the number of homeless.
The ‘Point-In-Time’ event will be on Friday, January 27, and you can work more than one shift:
8:00 am to 11:00 am
11:00 am to 2:00 pm
2:00 pm to 5:00 pm
5:00 pm to 8:00 pm
7:00 pm to 10:00 pm
10:00 pm to 12:00 am (Midnight)
Volunteers and donations are needed to record a 24-hour snapshot of homeless living within our city
A team of volunteers will be trained to interview those who are housing insecure.
The donations to hand out to the homeless are:
Water flavor packs
Feminine hygiene products
Any other winter essentials
Items can be brought to the Simms Building located at 808 S. Buchanan.
