With temperatures dropping in and around Osceola County this week, those in the community that are homeless, or that won’t have a warm place to stay will need help staying safe and healthy. First United Methodist Church of St Cloud will be operating a cold shelter, between 5 pm Tuesday (12/1) and 8am Wednesday (12/2) when temperatures are predicted to drop as low as 38 degrees during the night.

Eight volunteers are needed to staff shifts through the night. The available shifts are 5pm-9pm, 9pm-1am, 1am-5am and 5am-8am.

Volunteers will be checking temperatures and serving food and will receive a rapid-result COVID-19 test. The wearing of face coverings will be mandatory during the volunteer shift.

For more information and to sign up for a shift, please call (407)892-3128.
