After the record breaking cold temperatures, shelters throughout the area are in need of new supplies. The unprecedented cold weather brought in unprecedented numbers of people needing shelter and that took a toll on supplies that are normally stocked at shelters.
Items needed are socks, shirts, blankets, and pants. Ear muffs, hats, boots, gloves, coats, scarves, and other clothing items are being sought.
Shelter officials are also asking for donations of toiletries and paper products, toothbrushes, coffee, deodorant, and just about anything else folks can spare, including of course, monetary donations.
