With CMPC under construction, Howard County’s Cold Weather Shelter was hosted at Merriweather Post Pavillon by Grassroots and coordinated by Jeff Seymour during the week of December 17-24. The shelter served 26 guests including 16 men, 7 women, and 3 children in 2 separate families. There was a total of 79 different volunteers, including one large group,from BSA Troop 1997 with 21 youth and adults serving dinner on Sunday evening. Of all the volunteers, about half (not counting the large group) were from CMPC, with many of the 26 individuals serving multiple shifts on multiple days.
Their greatly appreciated service was recognized via a message sent from Grassroots to all the volunteers for the week.
Each guest received a $20 AMC gift card for use over the weekend courtesy of the Mission and Local Outreach Committee at Christ Memorial Presbyterian Church.
Thank to all for your support of this ministry!
