Columbia’s Inclement Weather Center is looking for volunteers over the next several months to help greet clients, hand out blankets and sheets, help with registration and direct traffic to various areas of the shelter.
Most volunteers are needed between 5:30-7:45 a.m. and 5:30-7:15 p.m.
The center is open on nights when the temperature falls to 40 degrees or below. A decision to open the center is made daily at noon.
Volunteer shifts are based on a 10-day weather forecast and are subject to change.
Never miss a local story.
The center is located at 191 Calhoun St., near Riverfront Park on Laurel Street.
