Daughters of Zion Announces Opening of 24/7 Shelby County, Tn Warming Center in the Face of Deadly Weather Conditions for the Next 10 Days

Memphis, TN – In response to the life-threatening cold weather gripping our nation, Daughters of Zion @ Jesus People Church is announcing the opening of a 24/7 Warming Center. This vital initiative, set to operate for the next 10 days beginning tonight, holds the potential to save lives in the face of bitter winter weather which is blanketing the country. The Daughters of Zion warming center’s announcement is critical as it’s the only warming center in Shelby County promising 24/7  10-day coverage for the impending deadly winter weather. 

 

With temperatures plummeting across the nation, the initiative reflects Daughters of Zion’s unwavering commitment to preserving life and ensuring the safety and well-being of the most vulnerable individuals in our community. As the deadly weather poses extreme risks, the Warming Center stands as a beacon of hope, offering a safe haven and essential resources to those in need, around the clock.

 

“As we witness the dangerous impact of this weather crisis, it is imperative that we come together as a community to support and protect one another,” expressed Monique Wade, spokesperson for Daughters of Zion @ Jesus People Church. “The decision to establish this 24/7 Warming Center reaffirms our dedication to prioritizing the lives of those facing homelessness and hardship, especially during these perilous conditions. This would not be possible without the invaluable support of Shelby County Mayor Lee Harris and Commissioner Whaley, Commissioner Wright, Commissioner Lowery, Vice Chair Caswell, Commissioner Sugarmon, Commissioner Ford, Chairwoman Clay Bibbs who have championed these crucial homeless prevention measures.”

 

The center, located at 4400 Hickory Hill, will provide a warm refuge, nourishing meals, and essential assistance to those seeking respite from the harsh cold.

As Daughters of Zion takes on this pivotal role in safeguarding the lives of the most vulnerable, they call upon the wider community to join forces in spreading awareness and providing support for this critical endeavor. Together, through collective action and support, we can make a meaningful impact and extend aid to those enduring the brunt of this challenging and perilous weather condition.
