With record-breaking lows this week across the eastern two-thirds of the U.S., it’s time to bundle up. Temperatures were 15 to 25 degrees lower than normal, with wind chills as low as -30 degrees. Homeless shelters are scrambling to ensure no one is forgotten during this winter chill, with many of them keeping their doors open for 24 hours.
DollarDays is here to help get the right goods to those who need it most during all stages of a disaster. Current items homeless shelters need to prepare include:
How you can help:
Contact your local homeless shelter: Find out what local shelters need to prepare for the influx of people staying overnight and donate the products they need most.
Donate: Whether it’s a monetary or product donation, everyone affected will need aid to recover from the damage caused. Even the smallest donation makes a difference.
Volunteer: If you are near the Arctic Blast, contact local shelters and find out if they need an extra pair of hands to assist with shelter operations.
