Charlottesville Church to Help Homeless during Holidays
A Charlottesville church is making sure the Christmas holiday is special for the city's homeless.
The grassroots organization People and Congregations Engaged in Ministry (PACEM) is partnering with churches to help brighten the holidays for people living on the streets. Trinity Presbyterian Church has set up cots for the homeless and will serve dinners on Christmas Eve and Christmas day.
"I'm sure there will be more caroling and anything we can do, we're planning to put up some Christmas decorations and put up a tree and just have everything ready so they can feel like they're enjoying their Christmas as well," said Abby Kirkham, a church member.
Homeless people are welcome to stay at the church for the next week. After that, the rotating shelter will move to another church.
