Because of the weather, the United Caring Shelter in downtown Evansville has been flying the white flag for the past four days.
"In December, we were averaging about 31 people a night. That's an additional 10 to 15 individuals coming in. We have seen some that we don't normally, don't come into the shelter, have come in, especially last night," said Kimron Reising with the shelter. "We hope they will all come in. We really encourage everyone to come in out of this weather."
The shelter still needs towels, coats, hot chocolate and coffee. Items may be dropped off at the shelter on Ingle Street between 5th and 6th Streets in downtown Evansville.
