Extreme weather shelter volunteers needed

The Burnaby Extreme Weather Shelter is in need of volunteers for its 2012-2013 season now underway.

A volunteer training session will be held at Westminster Bible Chapel, 7540-6th Street in Burnaby, on Saturday, Dec. 1st from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The shelter is opened between October and April when the weather is severe enough it is considered unsafe for people to be sleeping outside.

To attend the training session, RSVP to Dave Brown at daveb@lookoutsociety.ca.
