Hypothermia Selter 2019
Prince of Peace has been partnering with FACETS to serve our homeless neighbors for 10 years. Each year we open our church home for one week, to those who need a warm, safe place to sleep. The shelter opens at 5pm each evening. Guests receive a hot meal prepared by our meal teams and enjoy fellowship with our members.

We also provide breakfast the next morning and a sack lunch to go. The shelter closes at 7:30am each morning. We typically serve over 250 guests throughout the week. This year we are allowing guests to stay all day on New Year’s Day so we will also need volunteers to come in throughout the day.

How You Can Serve?

  • Shelter Volunteers: Volunteers make the week happen and jump in wherever needed
  • Youth Volunteer Teams: Our youth teams support the Sunday Set up and daily cleaning of the fellowship hall and sleeping rooms.
  • Food Donations: The week depends on the generosity of those who shop for and donate the many food items needed to serve our guests. Choose a few or as many items on the list and deliver on the date noted.

Warm Clothing Needed
We will be collecting warm clothing for our Hypothermia shelter guests. Please consider donating new or gently used jackets, sweatshirts, sweaters, pants, jeans, scarves, gloves, etc. All sizes appreciated, for adults only, men and women. The collection box will be in the narthex during the month of December. As you consider gifts for family and friends, please consider a gift of clothing or outer wear for our Hypothermia guests who could use something new or new to them. Sue Sweet at
