Augsburg Overflow Shelter

Augsburg Homeless Overflow Shelter

St. Paul’s is supporting the Homeless Overflow Shelter at Augsburg Lutheran Church on Fifth Street by preparing and serving dinner on Tuesday, January 15.

From December 1 through March 31, Augsburg opens its doors each night to provide a meal and shelter overnight for as many as 20 homeless men. Augsburg is one of five overflow locations in Winston-Salem and part of a broad coalition of churches, called City With Dwellings, which shelter more than 100 men and women on any given winter night.

Dinner volunteers provide an entree, side dishes drinks and desserts for 35 people, bringing their prepared food to Augsburg’s parish hall entrance at 7:15 p.m. and staying to serve the meal, leaving at 9:15 p.m.
