POST FALLS-- In Post Falls a heavy manufacturing plant is stepping up and holding warming centers for those who need a warm place to rest their head.

Inside the Ground Force Manufacturing Plant you'll find welders and grinders at work and massive peices of mining equipment.

On the same property there's also a parts warehouse where dozens of people turn each night to escape the cold.

Cots, suitcases, and sleeping bags claim spots for those who return each night, rather than battle the cold.

Ground Force's warming center is the result of a sermon, which encouraged helping others.

Company Spokesman Tom Hamilton says this shelter is unique because others like it only open when its 20 degrees or lower. This one has been open since November.
