GROSSE POINTE PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEM AND SOC TEAM UP TO PROVIDE 24 HOUR WARMING FACILITY ACCESS
Brownell Middle School, 260 Chalfonte Ave, Grosse Pointe, MI 48236 will be open 9pm-9:00am as an overnight warming center for all in need. Please bring pillows and blankets from home if you are able. There will be some cots available specifically for older citizens, or those who are unable to sleep on the floor. Those who are able are encouraged to bring sleeping bags. The middle school has shower facilities as well.
Services for Older Citizens, located at 158 Ridge Road, Grosse Pointe Farms, MI 48236 will serve as an emergency warming (and re- charging) center for disabled adults and adults 60 + years of age. The building will be open from 9am to 9pm every day until power is restored to the five Grosse Pointes and Harper Woods. While a power outage is inconvenient for everyone, seniors are particularly vulnerable without heat and power to charge medical devices. SOC will have plenty of stations set up for charging electronic devices. They will also have coffee, tea, snacks, movies, books, and games. They cannot accommodate pets.
Please call 313-882-9600, or the local police departments with any questions.
