BEEVILLE, Texas — In Bee County, for folks who are looking for a warm place to combat the frigid temperatures, a warming shelter will be available for folks in the area.

Members of the First United Methodist Church in Beeville have turned their facility into a warming zone.

Clergy members say for those who need to stay overnight you must enter the church gym before 10 pm. The church will provide folks with bedding, meals which include breakfast, lunch, and dinner along with much more.

“Now that the people have lost their electricity, they’re coming in so I’m expecting as many as 15 to 20 may be more we don’t know but we’re ready for them,” said FMUC Pastor Dean Fleming.

FUMC members say this is the first time they have turned their building into a warming shelter but add they will do their best to take care of the many folks who enter the building.

The warming shelter will remain open till Fri. Feb. 19, 2021 or until the freezing temperatures clear.
