EUGENE, Ore. – With temperatures dipping this week, the Egan Warming Center is planning to open the doors at some of their sites Monday evening.


KEZI spoke with Shelly Corteville, the Director of the Egan Warming Center.

She said they plan to activate seven sites Monday evening to ensure that people throughout the area will have a safe and warm place to sleep.

Corteville said they activate their sites when the temperature is below is 30 degrees. She said the weather has been unpredictable the last couple of months. Back in December, they were activated for 10 straight days which has never happened since the organization started in 2008.

She appreciates everyone who supports the organization, but said they still need more help.

“We always need volunteers,” said Corteville. “We also need socks, really warm socks, coats, hats, those are some really biggies."

She expects the centers to serve nearly 300 guests tomorrow evening.
