Harbor bringing warmth to homeless when temperatures are below freezing

By  | 

DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) - Some of Dothan's homeless had a warm place to stay this weekend as temperatures dropped below freezing.

The Harbor opened its doors and served as a warming station Saturday night.
Temperatures dipped into the upper 20s.

Cots, blankets, pillows and snacks were all graciously donated.

25 people showed up... among those were women, men, and children.

Kody Kirchhoff, Executive Director of the Harbor says:
"We had a good turnout. We had great volunteers that helped us with the shifts from 7 pm to 1 am and then 1 am to 7 am... had plenty of food, dropped off and delivered from the community, had a great breakfast served..."

The Harbor plans to open anytime temperatures drop to 28 or below.

They're always looking for donations to help serve the homeless.
The greatest need right now is for blankets, underwear and thermal socks.
