What is the Hypothermia Project?
For many years, St. Alban’s has participated in the Hypothermia Project, a local endeavor supported by religious and community organizations to feed and provide overnight shelter during the winter to clients of the Bailey’s shelter.
Last year, organizations provided meals only, directly to the shelter. This year, we are able to welcome the shelter clients and staff back to St. Alban’s. Shelter staff transport and supervise the clients during their overnight stay. Plates, napkins, and eating and serving utensils are provided. Here are the guidelines for St. Alban’s volunteers:
WHAT WE DO EACH DAY [dinner is served at 5:30pm]:
- Provide 1 meal (2 main, 2 sides, bread, sweet) to feed 40 people [If you provide pork, please provide a non-pork option as well]
- Provide 40 sandwiches (the shelter will distribute these to clients the next day)
- Set up and Serve the meal
- Clean up after the meal
