Plans made for extreme-weather shelter in Sturgis

Community members in Sturgis have a plan for an extreme-weather shelter this winter to accommodate its homeless population.

The group consists of individual residents, church groups and The Salvation Army.

The process began in 2019, when the city of Sturgis opened a warming shelter at Sturges-Young Center for the Arts.

The plan is to have a shelter at The Salvation Army, 105 N. Fourth St. The shelter will be open when the National Weather Service predicts minus-25 wind chill.

Organizers said the shelter would be open during overnight hours, open 6-8 p.m. to about 6-8 a.m.

The group is seeking volunteers.
