Twin Falls Warming Center Opens to Help Homeless Stay Warm
As we have seen, and felt, over the last week, winter is here and the chill is being felt by everyone. Temperatures will stick around or below freezing, even for the highs, into next weekend in Southern Idaho, but the overnight temperatures will stay below freezing for at least the next two weeks. The warming center in Twin Falls will be in the basement of the First Christian Church at the Taproot Church in downtown Twin Falls. The entrance is on 6th Ave and there will be a blue ‘Open’ flag on nights when the warming center is running. The open hours each day can be found on the Twin Falls Warming Center's Facebook page.
The Twin Falls Warming Center will have one staff member at all times and volunteers helping when able. If you would like to volunteer to help at the center or help by donating items, you can contact the Warming Center by email at email@example.com or by calling 208-358-3516.
Donation items needed vary, but personal hygiene items, snacks, instant drinks, and monetary donations are needed. Items should not be dropped off at the church but taken instead to the Valley House Homeless Shelter at the appropriate or pre-arranged times.
