Metro-area Salvation Army locations will serve as warming centers at the following days and times:

  • Kroc Center, 2825 Y St.

The Salvation Army opens warming centers for the most vulnerable in our community. Cold weather can be dangerous for the elderly, the very young and those with specific medical conditions. The Salvation Army reminds people to plan ahead when extremely cold weather is in the forecast, especially if they don’t have access to a warm, safe place for respite.
