Winter Warming Center 2020 - 2021
Posted Nov 12, 2020 by Julia Frevert
The Salvation Army is operating the 2020-2021 Winter Warming Center in Springfield, Illinois. Due to COVID-19, this year’s center will operate 24-hours a day, 7 days a week. It officially opens on Friday, November 13, 2020 and is located at 221 N. 11 Street.
In partnership with the City of Springfield, the Salvation Army invites groups, organizations, schools, churches, families, and individuals to provide a dinner for those staying overnight at the warming center. This facility is an overflow area for individuals unable to access other shelters across Springfield due to new policies related to COVID-19.
All meals must be delivered but no meal service is required. Please have meals delivered between 5:30 – 6:30 p.m. It is requested that each meal also comes with disposable plates, utensils, napkins along with single serving drinks (e.g. water, lemonade). We appreciate your assistance and generosity!
