Volunteering at the Fox Valley Warming Shelter: A Student’s Perspective

Students from AP-Applied Ethics class at the Fox Valley Warming Shelter

On Wednesday, May 27, my Applied Ethics class along with our instructor, Amanda Loewen, went to the Fox Valley Warming Shelter for our applied learning project.  When we first pulled in, there was a line of people waiting outside the warming shelter.  Connie, the shelter’s Volunteer Coordinator, later explained to us that at 5 PM every night the doors to the shelter open and those who are in need of a place are allowed in.  Once inside, they are provided with shelter, food, clothing and safety.  Then, every morning by 9 AM they must leave the shelter for the day.  Whether they go to a job, go to look for a job, or just hang out at the public library, they are not allowed to be at the shelter during the day.  Connie let us know about how important volunteering and donations are to their shelter.  Every day, they need a group of volunteers who are able to provide and cook a well-rounded dinner for the men and women in the shelter.
