St Vincent de Paul Opens Warming Center
With the extreme cold weather, St Vincent de Paul’s Warming Center will be open at least Thursday, November 19 and Friday Night, November 20. Future nights will be extended as extreme cold persists. As the sub-25 degree temperatures continue, St Vincent’s shelter will always be open from 7:00pm-7:00am. Transportation will be leaving from the St Vincent de Paul Community Dining Hall at 6:45pm on the nights we are open, and will transport back the next morning.
The Post Falls Shelter located at 202 W. 7th Street in Post Falls, behind the Post Falls St Vincent de Paul Thrift Store, in the Kamps Apartment basement. St Vincent de Paul is able to shelter 50 individuals and will have available sleeping bags, blankets, gloves, stocking caps, coats, a full bathroom, warm food and drinks.
A huge Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to donate sleeping bags, blankets, and food. Everything has been so appreciated by those we serve.
Because of the need St Vincent de Paul is accepting donations of warm food at both locations. If you are able to help or donate please contact Warming Center Coordinator Ben 208-771-5396.
