Help Needed at the Warming Shelter

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED! The upcoming forecast calls for very cold weather, and we need help to care for those experiencing homelessness.
The Salvation Army of McKinney offers an overnight warming shelter when the temperature dips to 32 degrees or 35 degrees with rain.  We help support this with volunteers to staff and prepare meals.  You can sign up to work a shift by clicking here.  If you are willing to help cook part of a meal or assist with laundry, please direct any questions to Velvet Hammond 214-726-6484 or email her.
