FCC February Warming Shelter

This will be our seventh year providing a warm place to spend the day for those who are experiencing housing insecurity. We provide a comfortable place in Pilgrim Hall to interact with others, and enjoy a simple breakfast, warm lunch, afternoon snacks, and various activities. The importance of this day shelter is simply life-saving and becomes very real as the temperatures dip down into the teens in February. The success of this shelter depends largely on our FCC members and community members who so generously give of their time, talents, and support through food donations.

Can you spare some time to spend with our neighbors? If you’re short on time but could spare food or supply donations, we also have that opportunity. We are open for our guests every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday in February from 8:45am to 3pm. Join us in spreading warmth.
