Overnight Warming Station to open this week and we need your help!

The Prado Warming Station will be opening this week and is looking for volunteers to assist with supervision and prepare and/or donate meals. 

When the weather freezes (32 degrees) in the City of San Luis Obispo or when there are 2+ days of consecutive rain, the Warming Center at Prado Day Center opens at night to provide additional shelter and a hot meal to those who need it.

We are currently looking at the possibility of opening THIS Thursday, Friday and/or Saturday, and we are looking for volunteers to help cover shifts and/or bring dinner in. Staff will be on all shifts as well.

The following volunteer shifts open:
Thursday (Christmas Eve)- 4:30 pm -12:00 am, 12:00 am – 8:30 am, or 4:30pm-8:30am
Friday (Christmas)- 4:30 pm -12:00 am, 12:00 am – 8:30 am, or 4:30pm-8:30am
Saturday - 4:30 pm -12:00 am, 12:00 am – 8:30 am, or 4:30pm-8:30am

Dinner meals are needed for 6:00pm for each night for approx. 40 people. The food needs to be prepared off site and delivered to the Prado Day Center. We greatly appreciate donations of plates, bowls, cups, and utensils to serve the dinner with. Other needs are coffee, creamer, juice, cereal and sleeping bags since all persons staying at the Warming Center are given a new sleeping bag to keep.

If you have any questions, or want to sign up for a shift, please contact Amanda at abailey@capslo.org. Please share message with anyone you think might be able to help.

Thank you for your help and generosity during this stormy Christmas week!
