Serve those in need
October 12, 2023
To The Eagle:
Wahkiakum County has many retired people. Some have been nurses, social workers, first responders, teachers, coaches, and lots of others with valuable skills that are still needed. Being retired just means that you have had valuable training and experience, skills that could be dedicated to others if you had the opportunity to serve.
The Emergency Warming Center (EWC) needs more volunteer hosts for the upcoming winter. Beginning November 15 and continuing through March 15, we serve those in need of a secure place to spend the night. Host orientation will be available to anyone not familiar with serving our guests. Assignments are completely voluntary if you might be able to host on a particular night. If we call and you aren’t available, we just move on to the next potential host. (If we have enough volunteers, you might not be called all winter.)
If you’d like more information about the EWC, please call Holly at (360) 703-7732, or leave a message indicating an interest.
