About Showers of Love
Beginning in October 2018, First Presbyterian Church opened their doors to the homeless to provide showers. We partner with Loaves & Fishes who provide a free lunch; and with YAI Paks who provide a clean change of clothes. Additionally, local barbers and hairdressers volunteer their time and talent to provide free haircuts! In the first year, we served over 265 folks!
Volunteers greet our guests; register them for a shower and/or haircut; hand out sack lunches; play board games, cards, and basketball; hand out towels and toiletries.
Also, volunteers help before and after the Showers by organizing the many donations of toiletries, towels, and clothes; laundering the towels; and gathering donations and reaching out to hairdressers and barbers!
To volunteer, contact Ann Waddle.
