Where to Get Warm

With freezing temps hitting town, here are some places to be warm

For some of us freezing temperatures an inconvenience, for others who don’t have a place to go get warm, it can be a matter of life and death.

On Friday, Dec. 16, lows are predicted to be in the 20s so the Egan Warming Centers are open. They are not open Saturday, Dec. 17 and emails from the organization warn they are low on volunteers, which can lead to unsafe situations. To volunteer and help keep your fellow community members warm, go to the Egan website. There is a training for new volunteers 10:30 am, Dec. 17 with in-person and Zoom options.

Lane County Human Services has compiled an extensive list of places to get warm in Eugene, Springfield, Cottage Grove, Florence and Oakridge. In addition to Egan, the Eugene Mission also additional space open during inclement weather, and Cottage Grove also has warming shelter space for freezing nights.
