Thousands of folks in the Mid-Ohio Valley were still without power Thursday, but there is help available.
Martha Stele is volunteering her free time to help keep people without electricity comfortable.
Stele, other volunteers and American Red Cross officials set up a shelter at the Belpre Church of Christ, hoping to bring those without power out of the cold.
"There are some, especially out in the country that just have no place to go; that have no alternate heating site," Katy Sulfridge, with the MOV American Red Cross, said.
"I just can't imagine being cold and not having somewhere to go, so now people can come here and not be cold in the evenings or even during the day," Stele said.
If you're living without electricity, the shelter is a great place to stay and get something to eat, but there are some things you should bring with you.
"They like you to bring your own pillow if you have a pillow," Stele said.
So after grabbing that pillow and some personal toiletries, the doors are open to all in need of a warm place to stay.
The Red Cross has also set up a shelter in Marietta at the Christ United Methodist Church.
