YOU can make a difference throughout Winter Contingency!

Today is Day 1.

For several weeks, we’ve posted about our Winter Contingency program in both Indianapolis and Bloomington.

Today, November 1, is the first day the program goes into effect. From now through March 31, each of our shelters will run above capacity as we provide safety and shelter for everyone who needs it. Wheeler Mission receives no government funding, and we rely on the generosity of private individuals to help us successfully care for thousands of men, women, and children each year.

As you can imagine, hosting hundreds of additional people takes a toll on our facility and resources. Will you join us in providing much needed help and care to our neighbors this winter?

YOU can make a difference!

A practical way to love and serve is by donating these much needed items.

Clothing and linens:
Men’s and women’s new underwear
Men’s and women’s sweatpants and sweatshirts
Men’s and women’s PJs
Under shirts (white & black), sizes large to 5X
