Review for Interfaith Rotating Winter Shelter of Davis, Davis, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I volunteered for the IRWS the past 2 years at Davis U. Methodist Church as a driver, bringer of food, and overnight supervisor. I had many opportunities to talk with our guests and listened to of their stories of life on the street. I am impressed by how many volunteers step up to help in the effort, and each year (including this season) the effort is better organized. All the shelter, beds, food and labor is provided by the local community, especially the participating churches. I think we've never turned anybody away for lack of beds, food, etc.
