Cold weather shelter to open Monday night

INDIAN RIVER COUNTY – A local shelter will open its doors Monday night so residents can escape the chilly weather expected to breeze through the county on the Martin Luther King Jr. Day holiday, emergency service officials said.

Guests should plan to arrive and register at The Source, a local Christian ministry for the homeless and needy, between 8:30 p.m. and 11 p.m., officials said. The facility is located at 1015 Commerce Avenue in Vero Beach.

A meal will be served.

Donations will be accepted until 9 p.m., officials said. In addition to monetary donations, The Source is also in need of blankets, hats and gloves.

Monday night was expected to have a low temperature near 50 degrees, meteorologists said. The rest of the week will have temperatures in the high 60s and 70s, and low temperatures in the 40s, 50s and 60s, according to National Weather Service in Melbourne.

Wind chills between 26 and 32 degrees were expected late Tuesday into early Wednesday, forecasters said.

Those who want more information on the cold weather shelter should call Executive Director Tony Zorbaugh at 717-435-2312.
