COTS 2.018 NEEDS:
We are in need of 5 - Centrex Plastics Dura-Tote 45 Gallon Metallic Blue Wheeled Storage Tote through Menards online for $29.97. Or a comparable wheeled durable tote.

www.menards.com/main/storage-organization/totes-bins-baskets/utility-totes/centrex-plastics-reg-d...

As we prepare for the shelter closing next week, we also prepare for the COTS program to begin on April 30th. Churches will partner together with St Johns Shelter to ensure that no homeless adults are forced to sleep on the streets due to a lack of access to overnight housing.

These bins that we are requesting will be used to transport bedding and other necessary items (first aid kit, cleaning supplies) to the local churches who will be sheltering our guests for the next 6 months. Volunteers are being recruited to assist in transporting the bins and mats.

Call Angela 436-9344 x.202 with any questions. Thanks!!

Can any of these items be dropped off in the evening?

Absolutely! Anytime between 4pm and 10pm. Thank you!

Stephanie Juckem Can we make a Costco run together so I can pick up some stuff?

Volunteers Needed Tonight: The shelter is in great need of volunteers tonight for a variety of tasks. Due in part to the snow, we are short on volunteers. If you are willing to weather the storm, please check in with Volgisitics and sign up. We would rather have too many then not enough. Thanks for your dedication! ... See MoreSee Less

What is volgistics?

What would the volunteers duties be tonight???

How can I contact someone I am 5 blocks away and am available to volunteer this evening.

Call St. John’s or respond on their Facebook post, I guess.

We need registered volunteers who are already approved. Volgistics is our online volunteer sign up program. Sorry for the confusion. If you are interested in volunteering in the future, please go to our website and fill out a Volunteer Application.

I registered a few years back. Is that registration still good?

Hey all! We could also use some Tracfone cards so our case managers can keep in touch with our guests! Thank you so much!

Do you need any blankets or adult clothing???

What about unopened vitamins?

Disposable or regular coffee cups?

Thanks for posting!

Do you mean glass / stoneware coffee mugs or paper / styrofoam coffee cups?
