We rely on volunteers to help run the shelter. During the season, each day we need volunteers to:

  • Staff the shelter¬†from 5:45 pm to midnight each day (trained position for adults, email volunteer@fcshelter.org for more info)
  • Prepare and deliver a hot dinner for 14 people.
  • Deliver bag lunches for 12 people.

Each week, volunteers

  • Buy groceries, supplies, and cleaning materials
  • Take laundry to laundromat and return to the shelter.
Volunteers also help by:
  • Sharing their expertise with residents.
  • Organizing fundraising opportunities.
  • Donating coats, socks, heavy clothing.
  • Writing grants.

Sign-ups will open in the fall–in the meantime, email volunteer@fcshelter.org with questions.
