King's Harvest Ministries is seeking volunteers to work with homeless people at the overflow shelter this winter. We are especially looking for volunteers to spend the night, but we also have opportunities to help from 8:45 p.m. to 10:45 p.m. with check-in. Also needed are people willing to bring food (normally sandwiches) for an average of 50 people. The shelter opens Dec. 1st and will close April 15th. Hours of operation are from 9pm to 7am. There will be a training for volunteers Wednesday, November 14th, 7 p.m. at King's Harvest. King's Harvest is located at 824 W 3rd St. in Davenport. For more information call Chris at 309-798-3776.
