Maria Biondi talks to Lynn Knight as Lisa Sen waits for more customers to arrive at the shelter.

With the temperatures going down below freezing this week, many residents already are saying that their homes are getting cold and they don’t know what they will do.

If you feel that you can’t be comfortable, or you’re worried about your health or your pets, the Orange Emergency Shelter is in full swing and serving residents of all  ages.

The shelter has 81 cots available at High Plains Community Center along with heat, televisions, warm meals, hot showers, and friendly volunteers.

The Church of the Good Shepherd donated food for tonight’s dinner and early this morning the Orange Rotary brought in breakfast for everyone.

The CERT volunteers have been working tirelessly at High Plains and Maria Biondi from the Orange VNA is available there for anyone who needs her services. This afternoon a regular client came in for a shot and had his blood pressure taken in the privacy of a quiet side office.

The shelter will be open at least until Monday. Please don’t be a martyr, if you need help, it’s available for you and your pets at the High Plains Community Center.
