TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) – A local homeless shelter is working hard to be running smoothly by Monday.

A devastating fire happened Friday at the Light House Mission on Wabash Avenue.

CEO Rev. Timothy Fagg says one goal is to get administrative offices moved to the Conner Center. He says personal belongings of guests were removed from the building on Wabash Saturday.

He says thousands of dollars worth of food have been moved to other locations so residents of the mission don’t have to miss out on meals.

“We’re feeding 460 people a day, a lot of hungry people,” he said, “If I don’t get it up and running again, I imagine they’re going to be a lot hungrier. So yeah, that’s the drive… to take care of the people of the community.”

If you’d like to help the mission, monetary donations are needed.

You may donate directly to the mission or though the local Red Cross.
