Volunteers venture out into the cold to help homeless

Christmas Hope

Saint Louis, MO

The middle of the street isn't the best place to have a conversation.

Mel Briles and Scotty McDuff don't seem to be thinking about that on this foggy, frigid day in early December. They're walking in downtown Atlantic, Iowa, and talking about their passion: helping the homeless in Omaha, 65 miles to the west.

A woman driving a minivan stops when she sees Mel and Scotty, and the pair walk up to her window.

She has some sleeping bags. You can come get them whenever it's convenient, she says.
