From Newport Warming Shelter Director Traci Flowers
We received great news today!!! The Lincoln County Hazardous Weather Shelter
has just changed to the Newport Winter Shelter. We will be opening Sunday through Thursday no matter what the weather from January 13th through March 15th… at the fairgrounds!!!
With this change we will need lots more volunteer help at both Grace Wins and the Winter Shelter at the fairgrounds. Food donations are needed for meals for the night shelter as well as for individual lunch items for Grace Wins Haven.
Also, we need people almost around the clock so even if they can just give an hour we can use them!! There are many opportunities to serve from helping provide a meal to helping someone write a resume. Volunteers can even help sort donations or wash bedding. Many hands make light work!
If you can help out – even for just an hour, call Grace Wins Haven at 541-234-4639 and talk to Traci.
