Charitable Organizations Issue Code Blue Alert

29 January 2019 Winchester Frederick County Clarke County News

In preparation for tonight’s below-freezing forecast, together the Valley Assistance Network and Faithworks are calling for Code Blue emergency assistance.

The area’s first ever Code Blue was issued from January 19th to January 21st of 2019 in response to temperatures around six degrees those nights. VAN and Faithworks worked to make temporary emergency shelter possible for the homeless those night with a special focus on families, collecting donations and supplying shelter to ten additional people. The groups are working in partnership with the Blue Ridge Housing Network to initiate another Code Blue that starts tonight (1/29/2019) and will last three days. Donations can be given through a link on the Valley Assistance Network Facebook Page.
