Help sought for shelter
The Snohomish Cold Weather Shelter is looking for volunteers.
There are many ways to help other than staffing the shelter on nights it is open. Those who are interested should attend a free training to learn about volunteer opportunities.
The shelter was organized by a group of people last year to provide a place for the homeless in Snohomish to stay overnight when the outside temperature drops to freezing. It is located at the Snohomish Evangelical Free Church, 210 Avenue B. Training is scheduled at the church from 6 to 8 p.m. Oct. 5, Nov. 9, Dec. 7 and Jan. 11. There’s also training sessions from 10 a.m. to noon Oct. 3, Nov. 7, Dec. 12 and Jan. 9.
People also can donate money to the shelter through the Snohomish Community Food Bank.
