WARMING CENTER OPEN
Mayor Shayne Gallo announced today that through the efforts of Reverend Darlene Kelley at Clinton Avenue United Methodist Church, the Bruderhof Community and Citizens Action, a warming center has been set up from 7 pm to 9 am until further notice for those who need shelter from the inclement weather we have been experiencing of late.
The Bruderhof Community and Citizens Action Group will be volunteering at the Church to provide assistance. The City Police Department will be reaching out to the homeless population to inform them of this service and will provide transportation for those who need to get to the warming center.
Mayor Gallo added, “Reverend Kelley, the Bruderhof Community and Citizens Action, all partners with the City to help those in need, have accepted another responsibility in the community without hesitation and I am grateful for this partnership with Clinton Avenue United Methodist Church, Bruderhof Community and Citizens Action Group to assist the City of Kingston in this extreme situation when there are so many that are experiencing a hardship.”
