Can We Help Our Out-Of-Power Neighbors?

The regional warming shelter for East Greenwich is Warwick Vets, but perhaps we can help out closer to home

I've heard from a couple of readers asking about warming shelters. The warming shelter for our region is Warwick Vets High School in Warwick. And the Community Room at the EG Police Department is available, with heat and plugs. 

But how about helping our out-of-power neighbors with warm food, charging stations and, perhaps, a bed for the night?

If you've got power and are willing to help, consider reaching out to those you know who are dark. Maybe it's an impromtu dinner invitation or slumber party. Let's see if we can help make these next hours/days easier. 

Any suggestions of how to organize this effort are appreciated!

Great idea, Elizabeth. I'm on Grand View Road and I have power. If anyone needs to warm up, charge cell phones or video game systems for the kids, use our fridge, microwave, oven, shower, etc, please contact me - 885-0437. If anyone is vacating to a shelter or somewhere you can't take pets, I can take in and care for cats. (if you have dogs, I think I can find someone for you.).
