This week’s extremely cold weather has prompted Atlantic City… to issue a Code Blue through 6 a.m. Saturday.  The alert is issued when there is potentially life-threatening cold weather to those without adequate shelter.

Shelters such as the Atlantic City Rescue Mission are expected to be full to capacity with as many as 600 people into the Mission and other buildings it owns in the city.

Some homeless people are often reluctant to stay in shelters even in the coldest weather or become confused or disorientated by the weather conditions, so workers and volunteers actively searching the streets and under the Boardwalk to try to find anyone outside in the extreme cold.

The Rescue Mission is asking for help with supplies to feed and clothe the additional people being housed during this cold snap.  Here is a list of what’s most needed at the Mission at 2009 Bacharach Blvd  Atlantic City.
