Adult Volunteers Needed

The Park Slope Armory shelter needs night-time volunteers. It seems that, as days go on there are fewer volunteers, and they are in dire need, especially at night.

Details:

– The Armory is located at 361 15 street between 7th and 8th avenues. Brooklyn NY.
– This shelter houses about 310 people from 2 nursing homes in the Rockaways. Mostly a senior population with some health challenges.
– They need 40 volunteers a night! While most residents sleep, they still need volunteers for general support, bathroom visits, breakfast preparation and food and supply logistics that happens at night.
– We are looking for volunteers to fill 3 nighttime shifts:
* 8:00pm-12:00am
* 12:00am-4:00am
* 4:00am-8:00am
And of course, double shifts are welcome.

– Anyone interested in volunteering should contact Amy Glosser: nightshiftatthearmory@gmail.com

Please provide your name, email address, cell phone number and availability. OR, you can just show up. They’ll be very happy to see you.
