BEDS Plus Needs Volunteers!
Since 1988, with the help of hundreds of volunteers from our local faith communities, BEDS Plus has sheltered, fed and helped thousands of homeless people in our community return to a healthy, safe and stable life.
Each volunteer works just 4 hours per month – but makes an impact that changes many lives.
Right now, we are recruiting volunteers for our 2011-2012 shelter season, which opens October 15th and runs through April 30th.
We’d like you to join our mission.
If you’re looking for a meaningful, rewarding and proven way to help those in greatest need, please visit our website or contact us today.
Volunteer orientation sessions will take place in August and September –all prospective volunteers must attend one 2 hour session. Space is limited – call today to find out dates and reserve your spot! Call (708) 354-0858, ext. 1 or email Cody at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info
