Our mission is emergency shelter for the homeless when the weather is 25 degrees or less according to the Skagit Valley Herald. We extend the love of Jesus to these homeless persons with friendship, shelter and food, and we extend a gospel witness as relationships are formed and the Spirit gives opportunity.
We need a minimum of twelve volunteers to cover each day we are open. The shelter is open from 5:30 PM until 7:30 AM of the following day.
Here are three ways we are inviting you into partnership with us in serving our community.
2. Agree to sponsor a night at the cost of $100. This will provide for two meals for staff and clients. And it will reimburse the church for heating, lighting and toiletry expenses. Some churches have taken special offerings to help the shelter. Send donations to New Life at The Well, with Shelter From The Cold in the Memo line, PO Box 1104 Mount Vernon WA 98273. Our Tax ID number is 91 – 1183521.
3. Collect warm socks, hats, gloves, coats good tents and sleeping bags and deliver them to New Life at The Well. We can provide a bin for your location to collect these items. The kids that attend your children and youth ministries would find this as a great opportunity to serve. You could challenge them as a whole to fill the bin to benefit the homeless in our community.
