Please pass this on as well:
Last week 2 homeless people died in Bend because of the cold weather. One man whose tent caught on fire, and another from frostbite. Next week, beginning Monday, temperatures are predicted at 3 degrees. These are desperate times and this calls for desperate measures. Janet Whitney has been busy asking Churches and other city officials to open doors to the homeless on a temporary basis during this cold weather. Churches are beginning to respond and now we need people to help man the buildings.
We need at least 2 people each to take four hour shifts staying with the homeless overnight.
1, 6:00 – 10:00 P.M.
2. 10:00-PM. – 2:00 A.M.
3. 2:00 A.M.- 7:00 A.M. (this is a 5 hour stint)
At 7:00 A.M. the homeless will leave the building.
Please if you can help e-mail back your phone number so we can answer your questions and give you more information. XX Thiel Larson firstname.lastname@example.org
