Union Gospel Mission shelter moves in

On Thanksgiving day dozens of homeless people moved into the new Union Gospel Mission shelter at the old Fire Station 39.

The new residents were served an early afternoon Thanksgiving dinner by about 15 volunteers at the shelter.

When asked what kind of things the shelter needs, UGM staff member Paul LaRose said now the need is for women's clothing of various sizes.

The shelter provides a hot breakfast, an onsite sack lunch and a hot dinner for residents. They also provide a day room so people do not have to loiter outside during the day.
