ST. LOUIS COUNTY, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

St. Louis County and the Salvation Army have partnered to provide a warming shelter for those in need this winter.

The warming shelter will be located at 10740 Page Avenue and will operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week from now until March 16.

The facility can accommodate up to 48 individuals at a time.

The County Executive has also allocated $250,000 in federal grant money this winter to Heat Up St. Louis to establish a utility assistance fund.

Heat Up St. Louis helps low-income and disabled residents in the St. Louis area keep up with their heating bills.

The organization said they helped nearly 300 people over Christmas, which is more than they helped last year.

The organization is always looking for donations. You can donate by going to their website here.
