MACON, Georgia(41NBC/WMGT) — The Brookdale Warming Center has been open for nearly two weeks, and they have helped more than 50 people. Now the organization needs volunteers.

Steve Bell — the director of the center — says they have plenty of donations, but they need volunteers. 

Bells says volunteers help sort out items the shelter receives. They also help sign people in.

The center received help from the Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Monday. The fraternity helped sort out items and also fed those staying at the shelter.

Fraternity President Juawn Jackson said, “We are all committed to service. So we see this day as a recommitment to the service and advocacy work that we are supposed to do in our community.”

Dr.Martin Luther King Jr., was also a member of the Alpha Phi Alpha. Jackson says it means a lot continuing the work of Dr. King.
