'Compassionate Caravan' brings people out of the cold on Christmas

By  | 

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Volunteers with the Catholic Action Center in Lexington, Kentucky spent their Christmas evening helping bring people in from the cold.

They drove across Lexington looking for those in need in the "Compassionate Caravan."

"What what would I be doing at home," said driver, Thomas Caudill. "I would probably be asleep or something. I would much rather be doing what the Lord has called me to do."

Caudill drove across town asking people if they needed a ride, a warm place to stay or blankets and clothing.

"If I slept out there all night it would be probably unbearable, but that's their life and we don't put them down for it. We just try to help them," he said.

Caudill said he has formed relationships with many of the people he offers rides to, which makes it easier to help more and more people.

"The Lord just gave me a lot. So if I do this, it's my Jesus medicine. I need all I can get," he said.
