ROSEBURG, Ore. – Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Roseburg Dream Center has decided not to operate a warming center this year.

Cases are rising and most Oregon counties are considered at extreme risk and are under strict COVID-19 restrictions to slow the spread.

The center is known for giving people a place to stay during extreme or cold weather, as well as handing out clothing and food boxes to those in need.

However, if the center were to close due to an outbreak, they wouldn’t be able to offer that essential food or clothing.

The center is asking for donations of sleeping bags, tarps and other items that can keep people warm and dry outside.

This decision comes after the Roseburg City Council amended an ordinance, making it easier to open a warming shelter during these times.
