Last week, the city opened a warming shelter for cold weather.
It’s at Pioneer Hall, at 73 Winburn Way in downtown Ashland.
Volunteers must go through a training before they can help at the shelter.
The city is looking for at least two more volunteers at night to extend its hours.
“So there’s people because of COVID are not willing to do it anymore,” said Avram Sacks, Ashland emergency shelter coordinator. “So we don’t have enough volunteers to open the extreme weather shelter overnight at this time. This is something that really makes a difference.”
For those who want to volunteer, there will be a training session on Thursday at Pioneer Hall at 7 p.m..
