How to Get Involved

Become a Winter Shelter Volunteer

(December through March)

  • Evening Volunteers: greet clients, assist with nightly preparations, overnight stays, morning shift clean up, and serve meals. Training class is required.
  • Meals: prepare evening and breakfast meals (can be frozen ahead), and snacks.

“ECHOS was honored to assist a local Etown family of four last fall, whose husband drove supplies to Texas hurricane survivors. During his trip, their electric fell behind and was turned off. Without electric, they had no well water, electric heat, or way to cook. Community donations made this happen!”
