Volunteers are needed to visit the Biddle House homeless shelter (Tucker and Biddle) and the Peter and Paul homeless shelter (711 Allen in Soulard) to play chess against residents of the programs. At Biddle volunteers play from 6:30 pm to 8 pm on Mondays and Wednesdays. At Peter and Paul volunteers play from 7:30 pm to 9 pm on Tuesdays, the 1st, 4th and 5th Thursdays and the 2nd Friday of the month. The volunteers are generally adults, but a few strong middle school chess players participate regularly. Several of the residents of the homeless shelters are avid chess players and look forward to playing.
