New Wine Fellowship Opening Tonight to Provide Shelter in Southern Humboldt
Freezing temperatures last night and predicted freezing temperatures tonight have Debra Carey unable sleep–not because she doesn’t have enough blankets but because other folks don’t. “I can’t sleep at night thinking I’m warm and people are freezing and there is a big church there and people could sleep and be warm.”
She is going to open up the New Wine Fellowship Church at 1180 Evergreen Rd. between Redway and Garberville tonight at 6 P.M. She says, “We’re going to open it up tonight so no one dies out there.” Temperatures dipped into the twenties last night and will continue there tonight. The National Weather Service says the rest of the week should have freezing or near freezing temperatures every night.
“If anyone wants to bring food that would be great,” Carey added. Those interested can call her at 223 3607 or just bring it by the Church.
“In 23 degree weather that is tough to live,” she explains. “I was out today and it was 40 degrees and it was cold.”
