With temperatures predicted to drop as low as 30 degrees, the Extreme Weather Shelter is opening tomorrow, December 20, in Redway. “We’re sheltering tomorrow at the Healy Center,” explained homeless advocate Peg Anderson. “It is open at 6 p.m. for dinner and in the morning for breakfast.”

In addition, she said, “There is free transportation from Garberville to Redway at 5:11, at 6:21, and 7:30 p.m. on the bus. If you say you are going to the shelter it is free.” The bus will pick up at the vacant lot at the corner of Melville Road and Redwood Drive. Then the riders will get dropped off at Signature Coffee and will need to walk the three blocks to the Healy Senior Center. (See map below.)

“We have enough volunteers right now,” said Anderson, “but we are always looking for people who will volunteer overnight.”

In addition, she said, “We are always looking for coats, sweaters, and clean socks.” There is a donation barrel at Chautauqua or donations can be made at the Senior Center on the night of the Shelter opening.

If you have any questions, please call Peg Anderson at (707) 223-0344.
