Morristown’s churches always come through when times are tough. St. Peter’s Episcopal Church has been serving hot meals to area residents who have been shivering without heat or electricity since Hurricane Sandy blew through.

News 12 stopped by for breakfast on Friday and filed this really nice video report on the fine work by St. Peter’s volunteers.

The good deeds don’t stop there.

Assumption Church on Maple Avenue is serving bagels and coffee each morning, and pizza at lunchtime.

The Bethel A.M.E. Church on Spring Street and Centro Biblico on Abbett Avenue are opening their doors as warming shelters, joining town hall on South Street and the fire station on Speedwell Avenue as places where people can seek refuge from the cold until their homes are powered up.
