Volunteer Opportunity:

Giles Emergency Shelter- Lunch Bags

Please note that you MUST sign up through our volunteer calendar for a day/time to deliver. This is a scheduled volunteer activity. Copy & Paste this link:

Shelter Bag Lunches: Please note that these sandwiches can only be dropped off in the afternoon between 5:00pm & 6:00pm. We do not have a place to store, if dropped earlier then the set-times.

The Giles Emergency Shelter (The old Statesville Avenue Shelter) has been converted into an emergency Shelter to house our overflow guests. Our goal is to provide basics needs - a place for men to stay warm, dry and clean. The emergency shelter will serve as a place for the homeless to seek refuge at night. We are looking for families, groups, churches and companies to provide bag lunches for 100 guests at our Winter Shelter.

If it appears all sign-ups are full for a particular month, we encourage you to use the tabs at the top of the page to find another month to support us!

Note that we require you to sign up one week in advance, to ensure our kitchen has time to plan accordingly for any days without lunches. Please review the Bag Lunch Guidelines PDF for guidance attached to the sign up calendar via the above link.
