Lynchburg, VA - Friday will be the last time Thomas Road Baptist Church (TRBC) and Sandusky Middle School host overnight visitors. They will close at 10:00 a.m. Saturday morning.

TRBC has been open as a shelter since last Saturday. Now, volunteers are helping clean and return the church back to normal.

Organizers have also set up a transition office to help people who need a long-term place to stay. TRBC Communications Officer Mike Tilley says church volunteers will also transition and start helping out in other ways.

"There's a lot to be done in the community in the ways of cleanup etc and we'll be participating in that as well," said Tilley.

TRBC is reminding everyone that their Main Street area is open every day from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. There will be free ice and water available in their parking lot through Sunday.
