Special Volunteers Needed
ST. MARY'S COUNTY - 11/25/2010
Local churches are providing shelter and meals for homeless neighbors during the coldest months—the program, “WARM” (Wrapping Arms “Round” Many), needs volunteers to serve as drivers to drive the screened participants to the churches in the evening and back to Three Oaks Center in Lexington Park in the morning.
Homeless shelters are usually filled to their maximum capacity during the coldest months of the year and the WARM program provides additional support for this vulnerable population. Churches commit to serve as a host site for a period of one week. Homeless individuals are screened by the Department of Social Services and the County Government provides vans to transport participants to the churches in the evening and then back to Three Oaks Shelter in the morning.
If you are accustomed to driving a 15 passenger van (at least 25 yrs of age with a clean driving record) and interested in supporting this much needed community program, please consider serving as a volunteer driver. The WARM Program runs from Sunday, November 28, 2010 through Sunday, April 3, 2011.
For more information on ways to "give back to your community" please contact Cynthia Brown, Interim Director, St. Mary's County Department of Human Services at (301) 475-4200 ext. 1846 or via the County's website at www.stmarysmd.com. Every individual can make a difference.
