ROCK ISLAND, Ill. — Editors Note: The above video was published on Nov. 21.
Rock Island homeless shelter Christian Care is hosting a mid-December walk to raise awareness to the winter conditions that the Quad Cities' homeless community has to withstand annually.
The "Frigid Feet" walk will take place on December 17 from 8-11 a.m.
The walk intends to bring awareness to what the homeless community experiences during the brutally cold months of the midwestern winter.
As the winter temperature turns colder, Christian Care is seeing more demand for their services in the form of housing, food and clothing.
The male care center's 42 beds are completely full. Martha's House, Christian Care's sister shelter that houses women, has also found all 20 of their beds filled.
Anyone who registers for the walk by Dec. 5 will receive an event shirt.
