Winter is already here and the HRDC Warming Center is set to open their doors on Sunday, November 1st. To get ready for the winter they will be collecting donations and supplies. That's where you come in.

Be looking for their volunteers around town on Saturday, October 24th.  They will be flying signs at busy locations around Bozeman in order to increase awareness. The volunteers will also be collecting donations for the HRDC Warming Center.

If you can help out the Warming Center it would be greatly appreciated.  Most of us know how miserably cold the winters can get here in Montana, but we have warm houses. Imagine if you had to live out in the cold. This is an opportunity to help out those less fortunate this winter season.

This year the Warming Center is in need of these items:

  • 55 Gallon Trash bags
  • 35 Gallon Trash Bags
  • Disposable Face Masks and Gloves
  • Nitrile Exam Gloves
  • Hand Soap
  • Hand Sanitizer
  • Hand/Foot Warmers
  • Lysol
  • Pine-Sol
  • Paper Towels
  • Hats and gloves

The Warming Center typically serves around 300 individuals each season and provides more than 7,000 nights of shelter.  On any given day, they estimate 100 to 150 neighbors are experiencing homelessness in Gallatin County.

Volunteers are essential to the success of the Warming Center and they are funded 100% by the community.  If you would like to volunteer click the button below.
