With below-freezing temperatures this winter, UGM has the opportunity to offer a Temporary Warming Shelter for our homeless neighbors, located at the former auto dealership (770 Commercial St NE). Due to the temporary nature of Warming Shelters, decisions will be made 1-2 days in advance when overnight temperatures are predicted to be extremely cold.
We want to thank our generous community for the outpouring of volunteers. We have compiled a list of Warming Shelter volunteers which we will contact each time the shelter is expected to open.
We are still in need of the following items to hand out to shelter guests:
• Water bottles
• Hand warmers
Please drop off your donations at the Men’s Mission (345 Commercial St) or our Donation Center (901 Front Street).
