Front End Fundraiser: Saratoga Code Blue Shelter
The shelter season extends from November 15 through mid March, and during that period a ‘Code Blue’ call to open the shelter is announced based on the weather forecast for the coming days. The homepage of the Code Blue web-site and the Code Blue Facebook page will indicate the current status of the shelter.
The shelter welcomes all homeless individuals without restrictions or qualifications, providing beds, shower opportunities, supper and breakfast for adult men and women. Arrangements can be made for families with children. The shelter opens at 7:00 pm and closes in the morning at 8:30.
Register Donations: We will be accepting cash donations at our registers during the months of January 2016 and February 2016. Just tell your friendly cashier that you want to help. Donate from $1.00 to whatever you can afford. Every dollar helps.
Tablings: Code Blue staff will table three times during the months of January and February. They will be onsite at our store raising awareness for their program and will be accepting food donations at their table.
Volunteers Needed: The Code Blue Shelter is always looking for volunteers. Find out the process of signing up and training here. We are going to have our Staff volunteer over the Winter and help out at the shelter. We look forward to providing some helping hands.
