Red Cross continues warming shelter through the early morning
The Hanford Dole chapter of the American Red Cross will keep a warming shelter open through 8 a.m. Friday because of the extreme cold temperatures Rowan County will experience the rest of the week.
The shelter opened at 6 p.m. Thursday at the chapter office, 1930 West Jake Alexander Blvd.
Any residents affected by extreme cold or any widespread power outages may take advantage of the warming shelter. Red Cross volunteers will provide warm beverages and snacks, as needed. The need of the community will determine the duration of the warming shelter through the rest of the week.
No decision has been made at this time on whether a warming shelter will be opened this weekend.
For questions or concerns, contact the Red Cross at 704-633-3854 extension 107.
