Orange County warming centers remain open with more brutal cold expected


GOSHEN – Municipally-operated warming centers and other assistance remain available to persons in need during the winter months, Orange County Executive Steven Neuhaus said Wednesday.
“Residence should check in on their elderly neighbors, friends, and relatives during the cold-weather months in order to make sure their heating systems are working, they are keeping warm, and they have the supplies and medications they need,” Neuhaus said. “Anyone can prevent a potential tragedy by being a good neighbor. And strong communities built on good neighbors is what Orange County is all about.”
