Got a question about volunteers?
Our greatest need is for volunteers. People who can help with meal preparation, serving, doing laundry and those who can stay overnight. Volunteers are also needed to socialize with the guests at the Inn.

Many innovative fundraising events have already taken place or are done annually to assist the Inn with needed financing for food and shelter needs. The Shamrock Shuffle is an annual walk-run event organized by a group of local runners with a portion of the proceeds going to the Inn. A 12 Hour Christmas Music Marathon took place in 2017,2018 and 2019. This event was hosted by Central United Church with participation from local musical groups, church choirs etc. These are just a couple of examples of fundraising ideas. If you have an idea and would like to help raise funds for the Inn out of the Cold program please contact us by email. Or call 519-933-9895.
