  • The Henderson/Vance Emergency Men’s Shelter is open. The shelter can only house six men at a time, so stays are limited to 14 days (they can return after a week IF there is room). Unfortunately, volunteers will not be used inside the shelter this year, but meals and donations are still needed. This year, meals must be delivered in take-out boxes so that the food is free from contamination. Eight meals will be needed each night (six men plus supervisors). Please avoid sending pork products. If you bring beverages, they will need to be in individual bottles. If you want to use a local restaurant, please be sure the food is in individual servings (not a pizza in a large box). The shelter is located in the basement of First Presbyterian Church in Henderson below the Fellowship Hall. Follow men’s shelter signs from the corner of Chestnut Street and Church Street – park in the alley and someone will come out to your car to get the meals. If you need help signing up or if you have additional questions, please call Jane King at (252) 432-9494. Check the current list of needed donations at www.cp-hope.org/donate.
