Homeless Superbowl
SPOKANE, Wash. -

As millions of people watched the Super Bowl at home, one Spokane church helped to make the game extra special for those in the community who don't have place to watch the game.

On Sunday afternoon, First Covenant Church in downtown Spokane held a special Super Bowl party for the homeless.

"It's a good chance to come and get off the streets for a few hours you know to watch a ball game," Becky Harvey said.

The church served a super sized meal complete with chili cheese dogs, french fries and cookies.

"We came up in here to get a place to come watch the Super Bowl and be warm that's the main thing," Mike Evans said.

During halftime, the church gave out socks, blankets, gloves and candy bars.

For everyone who attended the event, they say the best part was getting the chance to be off the streets and in a warm and loving environment even if it was just for a few hours.

"It's actually very generous of them. It's amazing how much the people behind the scenes put out for us," Evans said.
