Carver Community Center Warming Center
Last year, a full-time missionary working with the North American Mission Board was looking for opportunities to love people the way Jesus first loved her. Missionary Diane Smith found her opportunity with the Carver Community Center Warming Center. And, this year she’s doing it again. And she’s doing all of it out of care and concern for her fellow homeless Annistonians. A warming center will be opened this evening at Carver Community Center to protect those who do not have a warm place to spend during these bitter cold nights. Smith says her calling for the homeless and their care during the winter weather season lead her to place a simple, yet important phone call. Smith adds that the center is working hard to provide meals and consistent comfort for the residents who know all too well that the center is an in-between and temporary place to stay. Smith says 8 people stayed at the warming center all night and they had fifteen people for dinner last night and breakfast this morning. The Carver Community Center Warming Center will be open from 7:00P-M tonight through Thursday at 11A-M. Doors will be locked at 10:30P-M.
