Class of Housing/Services: Emergency Shelter, Soup Kitchen
Homeless Shelter: We operate a 20 bed shelter for homeless families and individuals. Last year, over 200 individuals stayed at our shelter including men, women and children. Our beds were full every night for nearly 300 days. We work with many local programs and agencies in helping our guests achieve self-sufficiency. We are in need of toiletry items for our guests as well as clean linens and towels. Shelter Dinners: Volunteers prepare meals to share as a way to nourish the physical and spiritual well-being of our shelter guests. Our volunteers prepare meals off-site and bring in to our guests on a regular or one-time basis. Many stay to visit with the guests for dinner and others bring meals ready to serve without staying. Please contact Marge Potter at 252-675-0038 to sign up for an evening that would work with your schedule and consider bringing in dinner for 20. This is a wonderful opportunity for a volunteer group. Soup Kitchen: A nutritious meal is provided every day, including holidays. The ECU School of Nursing provides basic health screenings for guests of the Soup Kitchen. Last year we served nearly 63,000 meals! We have volunteers of all ages helping in the Soup Kitchen; it is one of the most rewarding opportunities we offer. Check out our volunteer calendar if you would like to schedule a time to volunteer in the kitchen.
