After a successful first year filled with community support, including an outpouring of donations and volunteers, organizers are bringing the overnight shelter back to North Bend.
The public meetings will give Valley Renewal Center a chance to share plans regarding the shelter’s second season and answer questions from community members.
The second public meeting will happen on Saturday, November 2, 2013, from 11AM – 12:30PM – also at North Bend Community Church.
