JONESBORO — The Salvation Army, 800 Cate Ave., is opening its doors to people seeking shelter from dangerously cold weather.
Because the temperature is predicted to fall below 32 degrees, The Salvation Army will be open as Warming Center from 4 p.m. to 10 a.m. today-Saturday.
The schedule will be extended if needed. The shelter is also open nightly.
The Salvation Army is working hard to accommodate those in the most need such as the homeless, those who may have inadequate or no heat, and those at risk such as infants and older people.
Because of the threat of COVID-19, everyone entering The Salvation Army will be required to wear a mask. Masks and hand sanitizer will be provided. To combat the spread of COVID-19, food or clothing donations will no be accepted but bottled water, prepackaged, individually wrapped snacks, blankets, toilet paper, paper towels, travel-size hygiene products and socks, skull caps and gloves will be accepted. Drop off donations at 800 Cate Ave. Monetary donations can be dropped off or mailed and will help provide heat for those in need.
