Salisbury churches give shelter to the homeless

SALISBURY, Md. (AP) – Churches in Salisbury are helping the homeless survive the winter by giving them shelter from the cold.

The churches take turns every week acting as an evening shelter.

Allen Memorial Baptist Church expected a big turnout last night.

The doors opened at about 5 p.m. and there was already a line.

Since the cold spell began over the weekend, churches have helped as many as 60 men in one night.

The program is in its third year.
