SPRINGFIELD, Ore -- St. Vincent de Paul continues to search for a new location for their Springfield Egan Warming Center.

Executive Director Terry McDonald said they used to use the old Springfield School District Administration building, but during the winter storm, the building's roof was damaged, and they had to shut the center down.

McDonald said they are still looking for a new location and are asking the community for help.

He said they don't have a budget for a building and are hoping the city, school district, or others donate them the space.

"We are talking about human lives, and we want to make sure everybody has a chance to live through a bad winter event," McDonald said.

McDonald said an ideal space would be 4,000 to 5,000 square feet in size and have bathroom facilities. The Egan Warming Centers in Eugene are set to open in mid-November.
