      Code Purple Needs Volunteers

      Code Purple Decoded

      Think of "cold people" when you read or hear the term "code purple". The Code Purple ministry offers cold people, the homeless in our area, supper and an overnight, 6 pm- 6 am, in a safe, warm sanctuary when local weather forecasts predict 20° F or colder overnight. Eight Newark churches participate in Code Purple. As soon as NEC declares a "Code Purple" night, the host churches activates its volunteer staff. At First Presbyterian, volunteer teams serve for an average of 3 hours during "Code Purple" nights.

       

      The Volunteer Teams:

      • Prepare supper and ready the dining area
      • Set up the sleeping area for the overnight guests
      • Greet guests and explain the rules; monitor behaviours
      • admit late arrivals until 9 pm, when doors are locked
      • stay from midnight to 6 am, in case a guest needs help; this team also prepares breakfast and sees guests out
      • clean up

      Contact Pam Crowe, 738-4794, for more information, or visit http://www.friendship-house.org/Ministry/nPS.asp
