Nursing home pitches in to help keep people in need warm and fed

GADSDEN, Alabama ­– Recent falling temperatures across the Southeast have prompted many organizations to open up their doors to help people in need escape the frigid weather. In Gadsden, McGuffey Healthcare recently volunteered to aid in keeping people warm and fed at the local Salvation Army’s warming station. They prepared several meals and delivered them to the organization.

“The weather has been so severe and at times like this, we must look after those who are vulnerable in our community,” said McGuffey administrator, April Conley. “We are glad to be able to provide extra meals and some comfort for people in need.”

The Salvation Army at 114 N. 11th St. in Gadsden provides daytime and overnight shelter. The warming station will be open until the extreme cold weather subsides. For more information, contact  256-546-4673.
