Homeless veterans celebrate Christmas at Veteran's Renaissance shelter


Springfield - Homeless veterans are receiving some holiday cheer, just in time for the holidays.


The Illinois State Police and the Son's of the American Legion threw veterans a Christmas party.  The Veteran's Renaissance shelter in Springfield opened almost a year ago, to help homeless veterans transition.


Residents were given gifts and a pizza party to celebrate the holiday.


Volunteer, Limey Nargelenas says it was just one way to give back to those who have given us so much. "They're homeless, they served our country as veterans and we hope to be able to honor them and give something back to them since they've given so much to us and to our country."


The shelter can house 15 veterans. So far, 25 have been transitioned out.
