This month’s Fort George Benefit Night is for the AWC! The event will be Tuesday, February 25th, from 4:30-9:30 PM in the upstairs pizza restaurant. There will be a silent auction with items donated by local businesses, and 10% of the restaurant proceeds that evening will be donated to the AWC. Enjoy some pizza and beer and help out the AWC at the same time! Come and join us for this fun event!
The Astoria Warming Center provides overnight shelter during the winter months for people experiencing homelessness. The overnight shelter will be open on a weather-dependent basis from November 15, 2019 to March 15, 2020.
From April 5 through November 8, AWC will be open for showers only on Wednesday afternoons from 2:00-4:00 p.m.
From the AWC Board, many thanks to all the wonderful volunteers and staff who make it possible to keep the Warming Center open this season, and for 90 nights last season!
