Midland Church of the Brethren was one of two locations opening their doors as warming facilities after a blizzard brought as much as 14 inches of snow to parts of Fauquier County, Virginia.

Anyone in need of relief from the cold was welcome to drop by or stay the night. Available services included power stations for charging devices, warming up and relaxing with games and puzzles, bathrooms available but no showers. The kitchen provided pre-packaged snacks. COVID social distancing was required.
