It wasn't your typical Monday morning in Brownsville with people wearing scarfs and coats as they were bundled up as the cool temperatures rolled into the area.
"Pretty chill, actually cold."
In Brownsville it got down to a brisk 34 degrees Monday morning.
Bill Reagan is the executive director of Loaves and Fishes. He says a lot of people came in and found a warm place to stay overnight and Monday morning.
"We had a full house particularly on the woman's side more woman and children then they generally expect."
Temperatures did rise up into the 60's for most of the afternoon, but with temperatures expected to get into 40's Monday night Reagan is anticipating another busy night.
"We are both a homeless shelter and a soup kitchen we want to encourage anyone who might need to come by, in our kitchen we serve breakfast and dinner no questions asked 7 days a week. In the shelter we will be happy to provide a place for anyone who needs a roof over their head and warm place to stay."
Loaves and Fishes has 26 beds on the woman's side and 42 on the men's side. They do have additional cods to use if more beds are needed. Loaves and Fishes is located a 514 South E. Street in Harlingen. If you plan on staying there they ask you bring your ID.
