4) Volunteers for Overnight Stay – men and young men (at least 16 years old) arrive at the All Saints Gym (kitchen) by 4:30PM to make sandwiches for lunches and rendezvous with the servers to travel to the shelter by 6PM. Volunteers stay overnight (6PM – 6M) at the shelter – sleep on a mattress or bed in a separate room with separate bathroom from the shelter guests.

After lights out at 9PM, the volunteers will stagger the overnight shift staying awake in 2 or 3-hour shifts while the other volunteers sleep. High school boys can earn service hours.
