LANCASTER COUNTY, Pa.-- The holidays are near.

While for many, that can mean family gatherings, gifts, and food, for many, it means living on the streets and another lonely time of year.

Today on FOX43 Morning News, Thom Scott from the Water Street Mission, and Ryan Reighard, a senior project manager from The Exterior Company, stopped by the set to offer more.
