Hudson shelter prepares for freeze refugees
HUDSON -- If the homeless of Pasco County can find their way to this =
small patch of land in Hudson, they will be warm during this cold snap. =
The people of Holy Ground shelter -- staffers and residents -- have been =
working day and night to make sure anyone who comes looking for help =
will be well taken care of.

The chapel has been turned into a makeshift shelter, with sleeping bags, =
blankets and pillows ready for anyone who shows up. A dozen people =
stayed there Tuesday night. At least that amount are expected throughout =
the cold weather. When they do come, they can have a hot shower and dry =
off with clean towels. There are comfy clothes there for them.

Mark Linebarier, a 41-year-old recovering addict who came to Holy Ground =
in October after being laid off from work and becoming homeless, is =
staying up all Wednesday night to feed people, regardless of what time =
they come. He's got pots of hot soup, warm bread with butter, coffee, =
tea and hot chocolate.

"Helping people makes me feel good," he said Wednesday afternoon, as he =
checked supplies in the chapel. "To give is the best thing ever."

Holy Ground is located at 8835 Denton Ave. in Hudson at the northeast =
corner of U.S. 19 and Denton Avenue. The phone was not working =
Wednesday, but should be back up and running soon. The number is (727) =
863-9123.

Donations of food, blankets and clothes are needed. If you have anything =
you wish to give, just stop by Holy Ground and someone will be there to =
thank you and take your donations.
