CRESTVIEW — How can Crestview residents help the homeless? That’s what one city council member is asking during a town hall meeting tonight.

Councilman J.B. Whitten will host the meeting, “Homeless in Crestview,” from 6-8 p.m. Dec. 8 at Azteca Restaurant in Northview Plaza.

“Do you take basic essentials for granted?” a flyer for the meeting states, referring to a hot shower, a coat, underwear, socks and shoes, among other things.

Whitten and Ann Sprague of the Crestview Area Shelter for the Homeless will present the discussion. Residents can ask questions, broach ideas and offer recommendations concerning meeting the needs of the homeless.

The restaurant is located at 789 Ferdon Blvd. N.
