The Stand Up for Oscars Place Group held a meeting on October 14th at the UCN Lobby. One of the main concerns talked about at the meeting is keeping the shelter doors open longer. At this time people can only come into the shelter at 9PM and they have to leave by 6:30 in the morning. Stand up for Oscars Group Chair Olivia McCorriston says that with the cold weather approaching the goal is to keep the shelter open from six at night until at least 8AM.
McCorriston added that they are also in need of volunteers to work at least one evening a week at the shelter and they are in need of food donations. If you would like to volunteer or if you would like to make food donations you can call McCorriston at 204-761-9244.
