TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — Greater Lafayette has experienced some bitterly cold temperatures this week, and a local project is aiming to keep people protected from the cold.

Cover Lafayette encourages people to donate blankets and other warm items for those in need.

Its donation location is outside of 927 Main St. right behind the Buttery Shelf Eatery.

Organizers of Cover Lafayette are encouraging neighbors to drop off blankets of various sizes, shapes and colors.

The demand for warm items is extremely high now that temperatures have been in the negatives.
