Tarpon Springs, Florida -- The community has come together to help a Bay area homeless shelter keep its doors open, at least for now.
G.R.A.C.E. (God's Riches at Christ's Expense) Chapel is a day shelter that gives the homeless a place to not only grab a meal, but make phone calls and pick up mail. G.R.A.C.E. volunteers pleaded for help and shared how regular donations had mostly dried up. The chapel would have been forced to close Friday without some immediate help.
Donations came in on Thursday, giving the shelter enough of a budget to stay possibly stay open through the end of September.
G.R.A.C.E. Facility Manager Larry McKellar says they still need cash, breakfast foods, laundry and bathing products.
Any donations would be tax-deductible.
