In anticipation of nighttime temperatures in the 20s, Interfaith Coalition is opening its severe-weather shelters for at least Tuesday and Wednesday nights, Nov. 24 and 25, to provide safe places for homeless people.
The men’s shelter is at the Lighthouse Mission Drop-In Center, 1013 W. Holly St., about a block north of the mission. The shelter for women and children is at Garden Street United Methodist Church, at the corner of Garden and Magnolia streets. Shelters open at 5:30 p.m. each day.
The drop-in center also will serve a hot meal for anyone from 4:30 to 5 p.m. both days.
The shelters, which are run by volunteers, could remain open more nights if the weather continues to be well below freezing. Check the shelter hotline at 360-788-7983.
