Augsburg’s Shelter Will Open Soon!

Overflow Shelter Signups for the 2018-19 season are open! Augsburg’s shelter will be in operation again every evening from December 1 – March 31. We need volunteers to sign-up for guest reception, goody bags, partial overnight shifts (7:30 P.M. – 12:30 P.M. Sunday-Thursday), full overnight shifts (7:30 P.M. to 7 a.M. Friday-Saturday only) and folks who can prepare dinner (groups such as families, circles, & Sunday school classes work well here) for 30 people every evening.

Signup to Help with Augsburg Overflow Shelter Ministry

Contact John Collins or Emily Norris  if you have questions or need assistance. Additional details on the duties of each position are listed on signup.com.

A challenge for this season: Of 121 total nights of shelter, there are only 32 full overnight positions (Friday and Saturday nights) which need to be filled. The overnight slots are always our biggest challenge in securing volunteers for every new season. Can we fill all of these slots on the signup app before the end of the year? Overall, the goal of the Augsburg Social Ministry team and City With Dwellings is to have 75% of all our signups complete prior to December 1 of this year. Please help us out in any way you can!
