GUEST Immediate Volunteer & Donation Needs, and New Volunteer Training

The GUEST night shelter will be open at Abingdon Episcopal Church from January 23 – 30, 2017 and at Gloucester Point Baptist Church from January 30 – February 6, 2017 and they are in need of volunteers! New volunteers can be trained THIS Sunday, January 29, from 4:00 – 5:00 pm at Providence Baptist Church.


GUEST has received $8,000 in local grants this year through the Gloucester Community Foundation and J. Edwin Treakle Foundation. However, the operations of the day shelter and night shelter cost approximately $30,000 each year. GUEST is seeking donations to assist in the operating expenses for this upcoming year. If you, your church or organization would like to make a donation, please mail to GUEST, P.O. Box 743, Hayes, VA 23072.
