Williamsport Church Opens It’s Doors to Anyone Needing to Escape the Cold

WILLIAMSPORT -- First United Methodist Church on Market Street in Williamsport is opening its doors to people in need of a place to stay warm and sleep this weekend.

This is the first time the church has done this.

The idea came from a couple in the church who recognized the need, especially in the cold temperatures.

Local organizations and people in the community have donated coats, blankets and food.

The church has room for at least 50 people.

People are welcome whether they are homeless or just need a warm place to stay.
