STATEWIDE – Those without a place to stay during the frigid days can go to their local town office.
While homeless shelters can turn their clients out to the elements Fairly early, many towns across the state now offer community warming centers.
United Way of Kennebec Valley spokesperson, Courtney Yeager said “Yes, we do anticipate a busy year. Especially because as you probably noticed, the weather is getting cold very quickly this year. Tomorrow’s expected to be probably one of the coldest days of the year. So, we kind of opened just in time. And we do expect that need to grow especially with predictions of a harsher winter.”
If you need a place to stay warm during the day check in with your town office.
