Community Open House – 12/15/15

December 15, 2015 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Carpenter’s Shelter holds two large fundraising events in the fall and spring each year—Run for Shelter and Carpenter’s Cook-Off—with all proceeds going towards the shelter’s programs for homeless individuals and families. We also host bi-monthly Open Houses for interested community members and prospective volunteers.

COMMUNITY OPEN HOUSE – 12/15/15

On Tuesday, December 15th at 5:30 p.m. Carpenter’s Shelter will be hosting an Open House. This one-hour information session and tour is a great opportunity for community members and new volunteers to see the shelter, learn more about our services and meet our staff.

Carpenter’s staff will take visitors on a guided tour of our facility, including the kitchen and residential space. Attendees will get to meet one of our clients and hear first-hand about their struggles with homelessness and how Carpenter’s Shelter is helping them on their road to independence. Children are welcome at this event.
