BJCC opened as warming station as winter weather approaches city


BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — The City of Birmingham is gearing up to open the BJCC South Hall as a warming station ahead of Wintery weather for the next couple of days.

The shelter usually takes place at the Boutwell, but was changed this time around as the Boutwell has other events scheduled that could not be canceled.

Sources tell CBS42 News that city leaders like Don Lupo will be on hand tonight, as well as Mayor Randall Woodfin.

Those that come to the shelter tonight will be fed well by Bottega.

If you need access to the warming station and don’t have any means of transportation, the Birmingham Jefferson County Transit Authority is offering free rides to anyone that needs them. The free rides last until Sunday, Dec. 10.

If you want to help, they are looking for volunteers at the shelter, and you can sign up by filling out this form:

The shelters will be open through Monday.
