Warming shelter opens in old town Victorville; donations needed

VICTORVILLE, Calif. (VVNG.com) — After months of planning and preparation the opening day of the warming shelter inside the Victor Valley Transportation Center in old town Victorville has arrived.

Earlier this year, the City of Victorville Planning Commission approved a conditional use permit for the Victor Valley Community Warming Shelter to lease the city-owned location from November to March 2020.

The shelter will open its doors to guests during inclement weather and when the temperature reaches 40 degrees or lower.

Monica Feasel, a volunteer, said the shelter will open its doors for the first time at 6:15 pm on Wednesday, November 20, 2019.

On her Facebook post, Monica said the shelter is in need of water, coffee, creamer, sugar, hot chocolate, 8 oz cups, and napkins. Donations can be dropped off at the Set Free Church located at 16949 D Street.

The Victor Valley Community Warming Shelter posted on Facebook and said they are in need of winter clothing, men, women, and children. 

The warming shelter is located inside the Amtrak/Greyhound station at the corner of D and Sixth Streets in old town Victorville.

The new location offers separate sleeping quarters for men, women, and families. Guests planning on staying at the shelter are reminded that shopping carts/strollers and pets are not allowed on the property.
