The Seamen's Church Institute comes to the aide of those in need
10 Days of Overnight Warming Center
Over an 11 day period beginning December 27th, they opened their doors overnight for those in need of shelter during the deep freeze. They served 145 clients a total of 225 dinners, 145 breakfasts, 375 cups of coffee, 82 showers, and 42 loads of laundry. They were only able to do this through the hard work and dedication of their volunteers, who numbered 78.
