Shelter Ready to Help in Cold Weather


GRAYSON CO., TX --  The bitterly cold temperatures Wednesday night will hit the homeless and those without a source of heat particularly hard.  KTEN's Chris Severy reports on the help available to them.     

The Grayson County Shelter in Denison is prepared to take people in, from north Texas to southern Oklahoma.  Shelter workers know that when temperatures drop more people end up needing their help.  They have coats available to anybody who needs one.  There's no charge and no questions asked.  Workers also spent the day stocking the food pantry with all kinds of canned goods.  Now, they're ready to help who they can.  Shelter Director Paige Furst said, "they know they can come and we know that they will.  They'll come and we'll serve them a hot meal.  We'll let them warm up by the fireplace and they'll have a nice warm couch to sleep on at least for the night."  The Grayson Shelter is open 24-hours a day and 7-days a week.  It's at 331 W Morton St. in Denison.
