Emergency overnight warming shelter ongoing through Friday

The shelter is housed at the American Legion Post 79.

Due to below-freezing temperatures, starting Wednesday and running through Friday, an interim overnight warming shelter will be open in Snoqualmie.

Mayor Matt Larson recently signed an emergency proclamation that allowed Snoqualmie Valley Shelter Services to open the interim overnight shelter for Oct. 31, 31 and Nov. 1.

“With temperatures dropping near freezing this week, the City of Snoqualmie recognizes that homeless individuals and families with children could experience potentially life-threatening exposure and need immediate temporary housing,” said Mayor Larson, in a news release.

The shelter is housed at the American Legion Post 79, located at 38625 SE River St in downtown Snoqualmie.

Hot meals will be served, and all bedding is provided. Overnight hours run from 8 p.m. to 8 a.m. on Oct. 30 and 31, and from 6 p.m. to 8 a.m. on Nov. 1.
