Hypothermia Dinners

Oct 28, 2020 | Opportunities to Serve

During the winter months of December through March, unsheltered homeless adults living around our community have a place to seek shelter from the cold weather. Cornerstones partners with Fairfax County to operate the North County Hypothermia Prevention Program (NCHP), one of three hypothermia prevention sites in Fairfax County.  The center works to prevent weather-induced illness and loss of life among unsheltered homeless adult men and women in our community. Unsheltered homeless people are those who, whether by choice or by lack of shelter space, live outdoors, in cars, or in other places unsuitable for human habitation.

HerndonUMC supports the North County Hypothermia Prevention Program, by preparing and delivering dinners from December through March each year.  The dates for the 2020-21 season include:

Herndon UMC is dedicated to providing well balanced, healthy, warm meals for those in need.  Your help is needed in a variety of ways–from supplying the ingredients, cooking the meals, and then delivering the meals at the shelter.  For those who have participated in the past, because of the pandemic, the NCHP staff will serve, and food will not be prepared at church.  More details will appear here about how to help, but if you are really interested in serving those in need in our community with a meal, please contact Beth Czerwinski or Becky Field-Ross at neighbors@herndonumc.org

The mission of Herndon UMC is to serve and share God’s Love in community.


The vision of Herndon UMC is to live the teachings of Jesus so that everyone may know God’s Love and grow in Spirit-filled relationships.
