Warming Center Needs Community Support To Open

Posted: Updated:
BOZEMAN -

Bozeman's Warming Center is in need of the community's support.

The Warming Center provides shelter to those who need a place to stay overnight during the winter months. Last year, 130 people used the Warming Center from November to March.

It's funded by warm hearts throughout the community. Housing Department Director, Sara Savage said the center needs to raise $50,000 to open the center by December 1.

"When the Warming Center is not open, there's not an alternative for these folks other than staying in their cars, staying in outdoors or on benches," said Savage.

In addition to fundraising efforts, a blanket drive will be held on Saturday from 10-2 p.m. at the Warming Center on Griffin.
