Matthew's Hope in Winter Garden is opening a Cold Weather Shelter for those in need this weekend.
The non-profit homeless outreach ministry helps connect the West Orange community with various resources and services of need.
Now, Matthew's Hope is stepping up to help locals tackle the unexpected cold temperatures set to blow in.
The shelter will be open beginning at 7 p.m. tonight, Friday, Jan. 28, and will remain open through the morning of Monday, Jan. 31.
More than 200 people are expected at the shelter over the weekend.
The non-profit is asking residents for help in terms of donations.
"We need blankets, cold weather clothing, sweatshirts and sweatpants, paper plates, plastic utensils, cups, bottled water, regular sliced bread, financial support and prepared breakfast foods for Saturday, Sunday and Monday mornings," Pastor Scott Billue said.
Those who can help should contact Matthew's Hope at (407) 905-9500.
