Members of the Baltimore/Annapolis, MD Chapter Give of Themselves
Submitted by Lora Graetzer, FAADOM, DISIPC, Baltimore/Annapolis, MD Chapter Vice President
Baltimore/Annapolis, MD(BAM) AADOM Chapter members Jane Walkley and Sandra Detro recently spent an evening volunteering at the Reach of Washington County cold weather shelter in Hagerstown MD.
Reach of Washington County provides temporary shelter for homeless adults aged 18 and over…those who can care for themselves and are not at risk to themselves or others. The shelter is open from late October through the first Sunday in April and is operated and staffed primarily by volunteers from churches or organizations on a weekly basis. Maximum bed capacity is 42 (30 men and 12 women). When the temperature or wind chill factor is 32 degrees or below and/or there is the presence of snow, up to six overflow beds are available.
Jane serves on the Board of Directors and is a coordinator of volunteers. She was so excited that Sandra made the long trip to Hagerstown to volunteer and assist the homeless in keeping safe and warm during the cold weather.
Thank you ladies for giving of yourselves for the betterment of others!
