Warming Center Supply Drive

October 5, 2014 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Want to help out the Warming Center but can’t make an overnight shift work with your schedule? Donate to our supply drive! On Sunday, October 5th from 10 am – 2 pm HRDC will be collecting blankets and supplies, signing up volunteers and accepting donations to support the upcoming Warming Center season. Located at 2104 Industrial Drive, the Warming Center is the only place where men, women and families seeking shelter can find a safe warm alternative to cold winter nights. Open nightly, the center relies entirely on community support to provide this critical, life saving service. The Supply Drive will serve as an open house for community members interested in viewing the facility and learning more about how the center operates. Listed below are some of the items the Warming Center could utilize.

  • Disposable Cleaning Gloves
  • Hand Sanitizer
  • Trash Bags (55 gal and Tall Kitchen)
  • Powdered Coffee Creamer
  • Paper Towel

Contact Jaira at 585-4896 with any questions or to donate.


The Warming Center will also be unveiling a remodel to the center with the installation of showers. The opportunity for showers has been added to the Warming Center through a collaborative effort with partner agencies, local churches and concerned individuals. Determined as one of the greatest needs for homeless in our community this partnership will allow individuals access to showers in the daytime when the Warming Center is closed.

Last season, the Warming Center provided safe, warm shelter to more than 170 different people, varying in age from toddlers to senior citizens. Our fourth Warming Center season saw an increase in the numbers of homeless families. The majority of Warming Center guests are men and women who have lived and worked in the Gallatin Valley and are experiencing a period of hardship. Warming Center staff work closely with guests to help them secure sustainable long term housing.

Brooke Poole

Public Sector

Since 2015, Brooke has been working with Allergan Aesthetics, Body Contouring. In 2018, Brooke began her role as Senior Manager of Training. Brooke graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science in Commercial Photography from Appalachian State University in 2011.

Brooke began her role on our Board in 2019. However, she feels it’s more fitting to say that she gets to serve on our Board. For Brooke, an evening at our Fork & Spoon was her first glance into our organization’s powerful work. As Brooke states, joining the Board has only expanded her appreciation for the caliber of people leading our mission and the impact of our vast ecosystem of services. While metrics alone are impressive, Brooke likes to visualize each number as an individual example of support – an extension of a helping hand, a moment of relief – given to one of our neighbors. She is grateful for the opportunity to participate in shaping HRDC’s future.

Although Brooke spends most of her volunteer time with HRDC, she was fortunate enough to build with Habitat for Humanity over the course of the summer in 2020. Her favorite place to spend time is anywhere under the Big Sky, although Hyalite may be her favorite place on Earth.

Ron Brey

Public Sector

Ron served as Bozeman’s Assistant City Manager from 1990 to 2008. After retiring, Ron joined our Board in 2011. Ron received his Bachelor of Arts in History from the University of Montana in 1977, and his Masters in Science in Rural, Town, and Regional Planning from the University of Montana in 1987.

During his time with the City of Bozeman, Ron saw the important role that HRDC has played in our community. Ron has seen that HRDC provides necessary social services to assure that all Bozeman residents could obtain housing, food, training, employment and the other necessities of life. He also came to understand that HRDC was always able to respond immediately as new community needs arose. Ron believes that the dedication, hard work, and compassion of HRDC’s staff make it a real honor to serve on the Board.

Ron also serves on the Trails, Open Space and Parks Committee for the City of Bozeman, and as a volunteer with the Red Cross. One of Ron’s favorite activities is walking his beloved dog every day, enjoying many of Bozeman’s trails and parks, like Burke Park, Bozeman Creek, and the Hyalite and Mount Ellis areas. Ron and his wife Claire enjoy spending their days with family, friends, and time outdoors.
