Napa church is earthquake relief center

NAPA, Calif. (AP) — A Napa, California, church has become a relief center for residents whose homes were left inhabitable by Sunday's earthquake.

Crosswalk Community Church is a Red Cross shelter, offering beds and showers along with insurance help and meals provided by the Salvation Army. Pastor Pete Shaw says about a dozen people stayed overnight Sunday into Monday, with a total of 20 beds available in the church gym.

Other evacuees have been taken in by Napa residents whose homes weren't severely damaged.

Shaw says his congregation is glad to offer compassionate assistance in a time of need.
