(Garland Overnight Warming Station)
The GLOWS is a coalition of agencies, organizations and churches working to provide safe shelter during freezing weather.
We need volunteers to set up the gym before the event and take it down afterward. This means delivering cots, blankets and others supplies and taking them back to the warehouse afterward.
We need volunteers to check our guests in and be there to watch over them, keep them safe and handle any emergencies. Training will be scheduled periodically so you will be comfortable with your duties when called.
We will also need volunteers to wash the blankets after the station is closed. We will provide the funds to do this; you will just take them to a nearby laundry mat and wash and dry them.
You can specify what you are volunteering to do when we send out the notice of the station opening. You will also select available time slots at that time.
The station, which is currently the gym at Axe Methodist Church in Garland, will be open during inclement weather. By signing up here, you will be notified by e-mail when the station is going to be open and be provided an opportunity to sign up for a time that best fits your schedule.
We ask that you keep your email current and let us know if you no longer wish to remain on our volunteer list.
Thank you for participating in this invaluable program to help the homeless during a very dangerous time!
