Fremont Warming Center seeks donations
Submitted By Fremont Family Resource Center
With the arrival of inclement weather during the winter months, the Fremont Warming Center has opened for the season. The center serves people who need overnight protection from the elements and provides hot food, showers, clean sleepwear and sleeping bags for people who need them.
Located inside Wing A at the Fremont Senior Center, 40086 Paseo Padre Parkway, the center opens its doors on rainy nights or whenever the overnight temperature drops below 40 degrees.
To keep up with its goal of helping people throughout the cold winter months, the center is accepting donations from the public. Items on their wish list include:
¥ Shower: Used, clean bath towels (no dish/hand towels or washcloths), unisex flip-flops.
¥ Clothing: Dark-colored menÕs and womenÕs unisex sweat suits in medium, large and extra-large sizes. They should be new or gently used, but must be clean. MenÕs and womenÕs underwear in medium, large and extra-large sizes. The underwear must be new.
¥ Miscellaneous: U-shaped bicycle locks, plastic tarps measuring 6-by-10-feet.
