Greater Falls Shelter to hold Sunday training

Saturday November 17, 2012

WALPOLE, N.H. -- The Greater Falls Warming Shelter plans to hold a training session for volunteers on Sunday, Nov. 18, at the shelter at 23 Church St.

It is set to start at 3 p.m.

Volunteers are needed to staff the shelter seven days a week in two shifts -- from 7 p.m. to 1 a.m. and 1 a.m. to 7 a.m. Two volunteers staff each shift and are expected to remain awake during their shift. Other volunteers bring in prepared meals.

The shelter recently opened at its location just over the bridge from Bellows Falls and can accommodate 10 guests per night.

The shelter maintains a Facebook page at Greater Falls Warming Shelter and can be reached at bfwarmingshelter
