Freezing Temperatures Prompt Warming Shelter Services

Recent cold temperatures have brought reminders that IU Health Starke Hospital can be used as a shelter from the cold.

The hospital announced that individuals needing shelter from the cold can use the hospital area as protection. Wind chills well below zero have brought dangerous weather conditions to the Kankakee Valley.

Those using the hospital’s service are asked to check in at the front desk and bring their own medication.

In Marshall County, Culver Town Hall was also being used as a warming shelter as well. That service continued through the evening hours for those in need.
