The warming center will be open from 9 p.m. Tuesday evening to 7 a.m. Wednesday morning to accommodate those in need of shelter from the cold.

Additional services and support for the warming center are being provided by the Salvation Army, Cabin Creek Health Systems, Kanawha Valley Regional Transportation Authority, and other community organizations.
