Hosting Winter Shelter

Dec. 1-7

Eastern Shore Chapel will be hosting Winter Shelter and we URGENTLY need your help!


We expect to be hosting approximately 40-60 guests a night from Virginia Beach's homeless community during this time, and we will be providing breakfasts and dinners for them, as well as personal hygiene products, warm accessories, and fun activities each night.



1) HAVE YOUR MINISTRY HOST A MEAL.  In the past ministries have offered to host a meal. If you are part of a ministry (e.g. Altar Guild, Choir, Kairos, Care of Creation, Youth, etc.) could you please communicate with your team and see if you are able and willing to host a meal? As in the past, hosting a meal entails cooking and serving a meal to our guests. If your ministry would like to help but you don’t feel you have enough people to host a meal on your own, please let us know, and we will try to pair you with another ministry!

2) VOLUNTEER TO HELP COOK/SERVE. If you are an individual who would like to help cook and serve, we could use you any day! We will have a sign-up sheet posted at Sunday services. Please just list your name on the day/meal for which you’d like to help.


3) SUGGEST AN ACTIVITY & HELP HOST. We need help planning and executing activities for our guests. We already plan to have a bingo night. We are also hoping to have an evening of haircuts and manicures. If you have an idea for an activity we can host with our guests and are able to come help, please let us know! Again, there will be a sign-up posted at church services.

4) DONATE, DONATE, & DONATE! We will be collecting the following items for our guests (We will have a bin in the Narthex labeled Winter Shelter to collect these items):

  • Single serve toiletries (e.g. shampoo, soap, cleansing wipes, toothpaste, toothbrush, feminine hygiene, etc.)

  • Socks

  • Hats, gloves, and scarves


If you have any questions at all, please reach out to one of the following chairs of this ministry:
