From Warming Shelter Director Traci Flowers:

Here we go! ‘Tis the season of cold weather and long hours of cold darkness. The Hazardous Weather Shelter will be open at the Fairgrounds Sunday and Monday night – doors open at 6pm!

With us being open both at the day shelter and night shelter, we need of lots of volunteers!! There are so many ways everyone can help and it will take the whole community to make this happen! We need both day time and night time volunteers, people to hang flyers, prepare food made from someone with a food handlers card, juice, milk, paper products, plastic utensils, coffee, tea, hot coco, apple cider, creamer, sugar, Clorox wipes, soft fruit, desserts, etc.

If you can help us help others who have nowhere else to go, please call the Newport Warming Shelter at 541-265-1974 if you can volunteer.
