ST. LOUIS (KMOV) – The dangerous heat is driving St. Louis homeless advocate Reverend Larry Rice to drastic measures.

Earl Dorsett, General Manager of the Galleria released this statement in regard to the plan:

“Saint Louis Galleria is private property and a venue in which to shop, dine and experience what the mall has to offer. We welcome all shoppers throughout the greater St. Louis area who wish to use the mall for these purposes. We do not allow the mall’s common areas to be used as a venue to gather or espouse views of any cause, religion or charity.”
