LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – The Catholic Action Center’s “Compassion Caravan” was out Monday night in Lexington with temperatures expected to dip into the mid to upper teens. Volunteers on the caravan try to persuade the city’s homeless to come inside for the night.
If people don’t want the shelter, volunteers provide them with blankets, hats and gloves.
This is the second time this season that the caravan has gone out on the streets. It also went out New Year’s Eve, but it’s forecast to be colder Monday night. The caravan only found three homeless people on New Year’s Eve, according to CAC officials.
