Love Overwhelming got the green light to open a temporary cold weather shelter at 7 p.m. Wednesday after getting permission from the city of Longvew.
The shelter will be located at 618 14th Ave. LO received a permit following the city’s determination of a “severe weather event” for the next few days, when overnight temperatures are expected to dip to about the freezing level.
Love Overwhelming also is cooperating with the Kelso United Methodist Presbyterian Church to offer a temporary cold weather shelter at the church, which is located at 206 Cowlitz Way in Kelso.
Both shelters are requesting donations of blankets, socks, feminine hygiene products, paper products and warm winter gear such as gloves and hats.
