As Wisconsin braces for a major snowstorm, one Green Bay homeless shelter plans to host a service in memory of people who have died on the streets.
A Wisconsin Public Radio report stated St. John the Evangelist is a temporary shelter for people with nowhere else to spend the night. It's only open during the cold-weather season.
The shelter plans to hold a memorial service Thursday. Shelter spokeswoman Laura Robinson says five homeless people died this year, but officials will also light a sixth candle for all those who are unnamed or unidentified.
She says an average of 60 people spend the night there. She says the situation will get a lot worse when temperatures plunge into the teens and lower. She says, "it really is a crisis situation."
