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.
