PORT (People Offering Resources Together)
Wednesday, Jan. 23 through Wednesday, Jan. 30
PORT will be hosted by CMUMC the week of Jan. 23-30. PORT is an emergency winter shelter run through the auspices of LINK of Hampton Roads and hosted by about 130 interfaith organizations. Volunteers are needed to man three shifts per night. The first shift gets everybody checked in and fed; second shift is the overnight shift. Third shift gets up early to serve guests a grab-and-go breakfast and get them checked out. We have partner churches that help us fill shifts, but for two of the nights (Jan. 23 & 29) during our week Chestnut fills all shifts. If you are interested in volunteering for PORT, please sign up in the Welcome Center.
