INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (January 17, 2016) — Temperatures Sunday night into Monday could dip down into the negatives. This extreme cold is prompting the Salvation Army shelter at the Eagle Creek Community Center to stay open overnight on Sunday.

The Salvation Army said it’s working directly with the Indiana Department of Homeland Security, which is coordinating the effort to send families and other individuals to the shelter.

The shelter will not only provide guests with a warm place to stay, but it will also provide the guests with hot meal and beverages.

Similar shelters will also be open Sunday in Bedford and Fort Wayne.
