MIDDLETOWN – Overnight temperatures are dipping below the freezing mark on the thermometer and the City of Middletown has stepped up to the challenge of providing temporary shelter for those in need of a warm location.

The Greater Middletown Interfaith Council opened its new warming station at 8-10 Mulberry Street.

It provides a warm place for homeless individuals to sleep during the cold winter months.

The center opens today, Sunday, November 21, for the 2021-2022 cold weather season.

Cutting the ribbon on the new shelter were Mayor Joseph DeStefano and clergy of several faiths.
