Frozen Hobo Rescue out preparing folks for the cold

By  | 

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT) -- Temperatures are expected to drop significantly Thursday night into Friday morning, and if you add wind chill, many areas on the Western Slope are getting into the negatives.

That's especially dangerous for folks who have no where to go. Temperatures like this create prime conditions for frostbite and hypothermia.

The Grand Junction Hobo Rescue goes out whenever temperatures will dip below freezing to make sure everyone has what they need to stay safe in cold temperatures overnight.

"We make sure our houseless community members have enough gear during the cold freezing temperatures, so they don't freeze to death," Mary Jane Sanchez, a volunteer, said.

The Grand Junction Hobo Rescue says they are always looking for donations of things like sleeping bags, beanies and dog sweaters.
