Community Kitchen’s Cold Weather Shelter Open

Chattanooga, TN (WDEF) Continued cold temperatures mean the Community Kitchen’s cold weather shelter will be open again Thursday night.

Chattanooga Mayor Andy Berke stopped by this afternoon to meet some of the cold weather shelter’s users.

It helps keep people in need out of the dangerous conditions.

The mayor says the Community Kitchen provides a much needed service, and that more people should support it.

He says, "If you walk outside, anybody who has been outside today knows that it is absolutely freezing. We’ve got a lot of homeless that are sleeping in our cold winter shelter at night and what I want to do is come down here and donate hot hands and socks and encourage other people to do the same."

The shelter gets set up after the Community Kitchen’s dinner service.

You can donate clothes and blankets.

The Salvation Army’s ReCreate Café/Day Shelter is also extending their hours to help keep people out of the cold.
