Hypothermia Prevention Shelter

2024 Hypothermia Prevention Shelter

Holy Comforter will host a one-week Hypothermia Prevention Shelter from Sunday, January 21 to Sunday, January 28. In partnership with FACETS, our Ministry Center will host 30+ guests who live and work without a home. Unlike last year, where guests were housed in a central location and we brought food and supplies to them, our parish will provide a warm place to sleep and nourishing meals.

Personal Supply Donations

Our shelter will offer much needed personal supplies—toothpaste/brushes; deodorant; socks (new); underwear (new); gloves/hats (new or gently used); soap/shampoo, etc.; Smart Trip cards; and gasoline cards. A bin to drop off supplies will be in the Narthex.

Contributions Needed!

Donate much needed funds to support our guests for Metro Smart Trip Cards and other needed supplies. To support the shelter click on the button below and select “Hypothermia Shelter” from the Fund dropdown menu.
