Warming center to open Friday
STEUBENVILLE - The Warming Center at the corner of Fourth and Market streets will open at 9 a.m. Friday.
Organizer Molly McGovern said volunteers hope to open the Friendship Room Warming Center every Friday, "as a way to reach out to people who may need a place to get warm or have a cup of coffee or some soup."
"We are monitoring the weather forecast and if the temperatures are bitter cold we will extend our operations during those days. At this point we plan to be open only on Friday unless there is a need for more days," McGovern said.
McGovern said the Warming Center will be open from 9 a.m. until 7 p.m. Friday.
"We will have blankets, coats, gloves and hats for anyone who needs a little help," she said.
