Hypothermia Relief Shelter

2022 Hypothermia Relief Shelter

Holy Comforter will host a one-week Hypothermia Prevention Shelter from Sunday, January 30 to Sunday, February 6. 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.

In addition, our shelter will offer much needed personal supplies (toothpaste/brushes, socks, soap/shampoo, etc.), Smart Trip cards, gasoline cards, and provide entertainment such as music, games, books, and magazines. Look for the big green bin marked Hypothermia Shelter in the church 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.
