The severe heat in Madison has people running for their homes, and their air conditioning. Those who don’t have a home were welcomed Friday at the First United Methodist Church.

The church opened it’s doors to the homeless for a nice place to escape the heat, while enjoying a home cooked meal.

“It means a great deal, it means a lot to me,” says Becky Castile, who’s been homeless on and off for eight years.

The meal wouldn’t have been possible without the help from Angela Gargano.

“They all deserve a nice meal. They deserve a roof over their heads. And on a day like today, they deserve someplace cool to stay,” she said.
