The South Snohomish County’s Emergency Cold Weather Shelter will be activated when overnight temperatures are anticipated to be 33 degrees or below starting on Nov. 15.
The shelter network is open to families, women and men in need of overnight shelter. Evening and morning meals are provided.
When the shelter is activated, all persons in need of overnight shelter should meet outside of the Lynnwood City Hall (19100 44th Ave. W., Lynnwood) by 7 p.m. for transportation to a local sheltering facility. An additional shuttle stop is located at the bus stop next to Trader Joe’s at Highway 99 and 196th Street Southwest. Individuals should be at this location no later than 7:05 p.m.
The South Snohomish County Emergency Cold Weather Network is a subgroup of the Neighbors in Need Program which is a cadre of volunteers from local churches (based out of Trinity Lutheran Church) that provide emergency sheltering, meals, toiletries and clothing to people in need.
If you are interested in volunteering with the Emergency Cold Weather Shelter, contact Mark Waldin, program administrator, at 425-419-7938.
