While the weather outside is frightful, those stuck in the elements need a little extra warmth.
“Both staff and guests have been working tirelessly all morning to remove snow from the Upper Room Mission parking lot,” said the Mission, which provides a warm space and meals for the homeless on weekdays.
As the skies continue to dump down heavy snow, the wet conditions are taking a toll on those who don’t have a home to warm up in.
“As the weather turns sour, donations of warm clothes, hand warmers, and blankets are needed now more than ever,” the Mission urges.
Donations can be brought to the Mission before it closes at 5 p.m. today. It will be closed Wednesday, Jan. 1 for New Year’s Day and reopening Jan. 2 and 3, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
