Beds Plus Seeking Volunteers

Happy Thanksgiving All,

I received the following message from Bill Burke at BEDS PLUS. Their emergency shelters are opening up this coming Monday, November 28, and they are in immediate need of volunteers. Please take a minute to read his message below and reach out to Bill at his cell number listed below if you are able to share of your time and talent. Thank you.

God Bless,

BEDS is opening the emergency shelters from November 28 through March 5. We will be open the coldest 3 months of the year to provide relief (hot dinner, warm place to sleep, breakfast) for the homeless. You can learn more by clicking this link:

We presently need volunteers on the overnight shifts, 11 p.m. – 3 a.m. and 3 a.m. – 7:30 a.m. We also need volunteers more urgently at St Louise de Marillac in La Grange Park, St Barbara in Brookfield (now combined as Holy Guardian Angels Parish) and Redeemer Lutheran Church in Oak Forest. So whatever you can do, we’d appreciate.

If anyone needs more information, I can be reached on my cell at 708-446-4650.

In St Vincent and Blessed Frédéric,
