With the temperatures forecasted to be significantly over 100 degrees later this week, Bridge to Home will open their shelter facility during the afternoons to provide a cool place for those needing to escape the heat.
The shelter, located at 23031 Drayton Street, will be open on Wednesday, July 4 through Friday, July 6 from noon until 8:30 p.m. The regular dinner service, Feeding It Forward, will be served those nights. On Saturday, July 7, the shelter will be open from noon until 5:30 p.m.
Donations of water, ice and snacks are needed for these additional shelter days. In addition, volunteers are also needed to assist. Community members wishing to volunteer should contact Olga Ruiz (email@example.com). For donations, please deliver items to the Bridge to Home Shelter at the Drayton Street location after noon on these days and at the administrative office located at 23752 Newhall Avenue before noon.
For future days, when temperatures are forecasted to be above 99°, Bridge to Home will do its best to open the shelter to provide relief to people needing a place to escape the extreme heat.
