The Winter Day Shelter is open!

As of 8:00 am today. It’s located on E. Washington and operated by Porchlight. It’s been a long struggle and kudos to all those who have kept pressure on the city and the county. Thanks too to the County Board of Supervisors who overwhelmingly voted in favor of its funding. Linda Ketcham of Madison Area Urban Ministry has been one of the leaders of the effort and deserves a shout out.

The work is not done. The shelter is looking for volunteers to help with staffing and they also need a lot of donated items.

Here’s the job description if you are interested in volunteering: volunteeringatthewinterdayshelter

And here’s the list of items they need: Warming day shelter wish list
