REACH volunteer training scheduled

October 07, 2003

Scheduled certification training for volunteers for the 2003-2004 REACH Cold Weather Shelter concludes today with two sessions at Hebron Mennonite Church, 13315 Highlane St. off Longmeadow Road.

Classes today are from 10 to 11:30 a.m. and 1 to 2:30 p.m. Other times, day and evening, can be arranged by calling 301-733-2371 or by sending e-mail to reachcaregivers@aol.com.

All new shift, meal, laundry, shower and community resource volunteers are required to attend one certification training. Veteran volunteers who attended a training in the last two seasons may choose not to attend but must stop by the REACH office to register and receive a 2003-2004 CWS volunteer information packet.

All shelter training sessions are held at REACH headquarters, which is located at Hebron Mennonite Church.

Help still is needed to prepare lunches for shelter residents, said Terri Baker, executive director of REACH.

REACH stands for Religious Efforts to Assist and Care For the Homeless.
