Mid-Coast Family Services along with the Victoria Area Homeless Coalition hope the public will help provide warmth as the Crossroads is expected to receive more cold weather in the days to come. As reported by the Victoria Advocate, the organizations are seeking volunteer and monetary assistance for their warming stations, said Ginny Stafford, Mid-Coast Family Services CEO. The goal is to have emergency warming shelters running at Trinity Episcopal's Pine Street Community Center, Central Church of Christ and First United Methodist Church, Stafford said.

If you would like to help, contact the Mid-Coast Family Services office at 361-575-7842 if you would like to help. The nonprofit is looking for volunteers, monetary donations, mats, cots, sleeping bags and inexpensive ways to get people off the floor. Blankets and coats will be accepted, but the largest need is for volunteers to help operate the warming shelters.
