With temperatures getting down to as low as -50C in Moose Jaw over the weekend, a number of homeless people found shelter inside the Riverside Mission. 

Donnie secured himself a bed inside the mission on Saturday and says he was very grateful to have a warm place to sleep. "It's an overwhelming feeling with all the staff here that are all caring," he said. "Without help from them, I'd be out in the cold with nowhere to go." 

According to their website, "Riverside Mission offers 9 beds for men that find themselves in crisis.  We offer meals, a warm shower, clothing, toiletries and support in job and lodging searches.  We also partner with other agencies to provide counseling for addictions and other issues."

Jason, who also found shelter inside Riverside, says he would have been sleeping in his car if it wasn't for the shelter. "It's not too bad in here. It's better than being cold," he said while watching hockey in the lounge area of the shelter.
