GREENSBORO, NC -- When you're homeless there's not much you can depend on.
"I've lived in my car for 6 months. I've lived in various shelters."
You're not handed a lot in life.
"I didn't have anywhere to go."
But people experiencing homelessness had a place to go this Christmas. Every Sunday Saint James Presbyterian Church and Cone Health provide a warm message of hope, a free meal and medical services.
This Sunday they also provided a holiday tradition: a Christmas gift - warm socks and a blanket.
"It was great that they served on Christmas day," she said. "Because many persons didn't have a place to go."
"It makes me feel really good because I think that some of those living on the edge that are economically disadvantaged, their spirits, I mean the human spirit is so amazing, so buoyant and they're able to bounce back from the things that they have been through, it's amazing," Pastor Diane Givens Moffett said.
The gifts were made possible by community support. A Cone Health employee raised money on a GoFundMe page.
