With sub-freezing overnight temperatures in the forecast, the Orcas severe weather shelter will be open this coming Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday nights (2/3 – 2/5). They are located in the basement of the Community Church.

Doors will open at 7 p.m. and ask that guests check in by 9 p.m. They will not turn away someone showing up after 9 p.m. but if no one shows by about 10 p.m., volunteers will lock up and go home.

They will have hot drinks and snacks available in the evenings, and a hot breakfast in the mornings. They will close at 8 a.m., as the church has regular morning activities scheduled for that space.

If you are interested in volunteering at the shelter, email janine.heimerich@gmail.com.
