INDIANAPOLIS – Wheeler Mission needs a little assistance in keeping people warm this winter and is asking the public for donations.
There are about 450 men sleeping in the shelter each night, with more than 100 men sleeping on the floor because there are not enough cots. Around 85 women and children have been sleeping in Wheeler’s emergency shelter.
Wheeler staff says the shelter is in need of pajamas, twin sheets, and coats.
Other items in high demand include:
- Toilet paper
- Toothbrushes, shampoo, soap, and other toiletries
- Socks and underwear
- Winter hats
Items can be dropped off Wheeler Mission on 520 E. Market Street or at the Wheeler Mission Donation Center at 728 Madison Avenue. There are also Wheeler donation barns at churches across Indianapolis.
