Carver Community Center Remains Open as Warming Center
Despite today’s weather not being as bad as expected, warming shelters remained opened to support those who didn’t have their kitchens stocked with food or heat in their homes. The doors opened at the Carver Community Center at 6 a.m. this morning. Serving everyone in need with coffee, food, and warm shelter.
All items including food were donated by families, churches, and businesses. The Carver Community Center warming station will be open 24 hours until February first at 7 a.m. Diane Smith has been volunteering at the warming center for the last five years and enjoys helping and uplifting others every chance she gets. Smith also says she is often times overwhelmed at the amount of support given by the community and wants others to feel the same way. More than 40 people came for lunch today and Smith expects more for dinner and several to stay the night to keep warm. If you would like to donate time, supplies, or food to the warming center, simply visit during regular business hours.
