New Brunswick is in the middle of a cold snap, and Elijah's Promise has announced that their doors are open through Saturday morning for city homeless to get out of the cold.
According to the anti-hunger organization, it works with the city of New Brunswick to provide temporary shelter to the homeless population when temperatures dip below 20 degrees Fahrenheit, or when there are at least six inches of snow on the ground.
Anyone in need of warm shelter can go to the Elijah's Promise Soup Kitchen, 18 Neilson St., between 7 p.m. and 7 a.m. tonight, Jan. 22 through the morning of Saturday, Jan. 26.
If transportation is needed to reach the shelter, it will be provided by city emergency responders.
In order to call for help, or to alert officials of anyone on the street who may need help, the Homeless Hotline can be reached by dialing 211 for the duration of Code Blue.
Code Blue response teams will also comb the city to inform homeless residents of the shelter, according to Elijah's Promise.
A handout advertising Code Blue shelter, printed in both English and Spanish, provided by Elijah' Promise, is available at right.
