The Inclement Weather Center in Columbia needs volunteers as temperatures drop in the coming days.
Volunteers are needed to help greet clients, handout blankets and sheets, help with registration and direct traffic to specific areas.
The center is located at 191 Calhoun St. near the River Walk off of Laurel Street, and most volunteers are needed between 5:30-7:45 a.m. and 5:30-7:15 p.m.
The center is open only on nights when the temperature is 40 degrees or below, and a decision about closing is made each at noon each day.
Volunteer shifts are based on a 10-day weather forecast and are subject to change. To volunteer, visit uway.org. For more information on the Inclement Weather Center’s operations, contact Natascha Gochett at firstname.lastname@example.org .
