We look forward to working with our seasoned volunteers and all our any new ones.  We are thankful for all the support we have been receiving. 
Red Cross Heroes: Cold Weather Shelter
First Congregational Church & South Congregational Church
During the 2010 Heroes Breakfast, the American Red Cross-Granite Chapter honored outstanding people or groups who gave selflessly to their communities. One group were two churches in Concord NH who together have rallied over 200 volunteers each year to manage the Cold Weather Shelter program for the homeless community in the Concord area.
Contact Donn or Terry if interested in volunteering for the 2013-2014 season.


The shelter offers a warm, friendly and comfortable location to stay overnight from 6 pm until 8 am.
