Female volunteers needed at Springfield Egan Warming Center
SPRINGFIELD, Ore. - The Egan Warming Center says its new Springfield site has been up and running quite nicely.
It has dining tables and holiday lights.
People can also take scarves, hats and gloves when they leave for the day.
But, the Egan Warming Center says it’s still in desperate need of volunteers, hopefully 1,000 more for this season.
The youth site, especially, needs more female volunteers.
“At the youth site, it's a little different because we have to balance the gender of volunteers for our youth for, what I would consider, obvious reasons,” Shelley Corteville with the Egan Warming Center says.
If you’d like to volunteer at the youth site, there’s an orientation on Tuesday at 6 p.m. at First United Methodist Church.
Corteville says Cahoots will be there to teach deescalation training.
