Mqt UU Hosts Room At The Inn ~ January 2015

MqtUU & Room At The Inn

The Marquette Unitarian Universalist Congregation will host Room at the Inn (RATI) during the week of January 11th-January 18th. Room at the Inn is rotating homeless shelter that operates October through May. While several members of MqtUU have supported RATI through volunteerism, it is the first time MqtUU is hosting.

We will need approximately 90 volunteers to execute this project. There is a volunteer opportunity for everyone from cooking and serving a meal, assisting with set up or break down, doing loads of laundry, covering a shift (MUST attend training–see below), providing snacks, and more. Michelle Halley and Sarah Johnson are our UU Coordinators, with additional support provided by Darlene Dreisbach and Kim Frost, Guest Advocate at RATI.

Items needed: night lights, two wash tubs, toiletries (toothbrushes, toothpaste, feminine sanitary products).

Sign ups will be available on Sundays with the goal of having all slots filled by Sunday, December 14th. You may also contact Sarah Johnson, 458-3915 or OR Michelle Halley, 361-0520 or

The next training is December 18th at the Warming Center at 6pm. Training lasts approximately 1 1/2-2 hours.
