Several churches in the city have opened their respective facilities to serve as warming stations for those without power. Most are asking that you bring pillows and blankets should you need to be there a while.

Churches we currently know of that are serving in this way are:

- First Baptist Church (adjacent to sports complex on 287 service road)

- Waxahachie Bible Church (on Grand Ave. across from SAGU)

- Farley St. Baptist (on Brown St just south of 287)

- The Avenue Church (on 77 just north of 287)

Also…

• 48-hour warming shelter at Live Oak Gymnasium (old Red Oak ISD Junior High), 200 Live Oak St., Red Oak

• The Ennis CARES Program is provioding overnight shelter to those without heat or electricity. Please call the Bluebonnet Call Center at 972-695-3524 if you need shelter from the extreme cold.

As we learn of more resources, we will post them here. Thank you and please, please be safe.
