Help for how to sign up
The Kenmore Bothell Interfaith Group is supporting the North King County Winter Shelter in Kenmore during the month of November 2018. It will be located in Kenmore, like last year, at Northlake Lutheran Church. KBIG partners with the Lake City Partners for professional support and management.
You only need to attend one of the sessions. Location for training is Northlake Lutheran Church in Kenmore.
- Thursday, October 11th from 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm
- Saturday, October 13th from 10 am – Noon.
Hosts: We need two volunteer hosts each evening to supervise setup of the dining area, to manage the kitchen, to identify needed supplies, and to provide general support. 7 pm – 8:30 am.
Drivers: We need one person each evening and one person each morning to shuttle guests between the Kenmore Park and Ride and the church, about half a mile away. There will be a stipend paid to the drivers. The evening driver should expect to work from 7:25 PM until 8:30. The morning driver will work from 6:00 am – 6:30 am.
Emergency on-call driver: We will need one person to be available each night for the rare case when a guest needs to be given transportation away from the shelter. This may entail a call in the middle of the night.
Dishwasher: Each evening we will need one person in the kitchen to wash dishes by hand, run them through a sterilizer and to put everything away and clean up the kitchen. There will be a stipend paid to the dishwasher. 8pm – 9pm.
Meal providers: Each evening a volunteer group will bring prepared food to serve up to 40 persons (shelter guests and volunteers). Members of this group will serve the meal to the guests.
