"To love God and neighbor is not something abstract, but profoundly concrete: it means seeing in every person the face of the Lord to be served, to serve him concretely."
- Pope Francis, Address during Visit at the Homeless Shelter "Dono Di Maria," 5/21/13
Our parish helps staff the Salvation Army's Cold Weather Shelter in Redlands on Friday evenings. We work in teams, rotating every few hours on alternating Fridays.
The Cold Weather Shelter operates between December 1 - March 31 each year.
It opens when temperature drops below 30 degrees or there is 30% or greater chance of precipitation.
The shelter is completely volunteer-driven and is staffed by people from many faith backgrounds.
Donation Requests by Salvation Army Cold Weather Shelter:
Sweat pants and shirts. Socks.
