If the forecast is correct, residents of Pittsburg, Kansas, will soon be experiencing some of the lowest temperatures in the nation.

The Community Health Center of Southeast Kansas, in a new partnership with Wesley House, is trying to raise $50,000 to set up the 90-day shelter, which will be called the Gathering Place.
The nonprofit says it will cost about $35 per night to feed and house people at the shelter, which will have 16 emergency beds.
"We're so thankful for the generous donations and support that we've received thus far," Leah Gagnon, director at Wesley House, said in a statement.
"Every donation brings us much closer to our goal of getting our homeless out the dangerous cold."
