Posted: Dec 8, 2020 10:26 PM

The Evansville Rescue Mission announces its, “Stay Warm. Stay Safe.” Program will feature a new Winter Warming Shelter, only open on White Flag days from 8:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m.

The Winter Warming Shelter is located in a tent on the main campus of the Mission. It's available for men, women, and children during daytime hours of operation. The Evansville Rescue Mission is partnering with the United Caring Services White Flag program at the CK Newsome Center for overnight lodging options. The Winter Warming Shelter features a living room space and Grab ‘n Go Meals the Mission provides three times each day.

According to Reverend Tracy Gorman, President & CEO of the Evansville Rescue Mission, The "Stay Warm. Stay Safe"Program will literally save lives during the cold months ahead. It is our hope that the Winter Warming Shelter will not only keep individuals safe, but also, will provide a comfortable space for them to enjoy their meals safely during the remaining months of the COVID-19 pandemic.”

White Flag Days are days when the air temperature or the wind chill factor drops below 32 degrees Fahrenheit.

ERM is providing approximately 1,000 Grab ‘n Go meals each week for local individuals and families in need. Donations during the holidays can be made securely online at www.EvansvilleRescueMission.org; or by texting StayWarm to 313131.

Wow!!!! It's cold!!!! After a trace of snow in Evansville and some higher amounts to the south, we're waking up to temperatures in the mid to upper teens across the Tri-State. Thankfully, road crews did a fantastic job treating the roads to keep conditions from getting slick. However, the northerly winds gusting as high as 15 to 20 mph has dropped wind chill values into the single digits and even below zero in our western communities. There won't be much of an improvement in temperatures this afternoon. With the strong northerly wind flow and dry skies our highs will only reach the mid to upper 20s. Winds will stay quite breezy keeping the wind chill factor in place through the day.
