With cold weather creating dangerous conditions this week, The Salvation Army will reach out to individuals staying on the streets and those without heat to make sure all have are sheltered from the cold.

On Monday night, The Salvation Army housed 75 individuals and expects to house more as the weather gets worse. These individuals will be allowed to stay at the shelter during the day this week. Residents will be fed three meals a day and will have access to TV, board games and cards.

Tuesday through Thursday this week, The Salvation Army will hit the streets through its Survive the Night program to provide hot meals, warm clothing items and blankets to individuals who choose to stay on the streets despite the weather. The Salvation Army will seek these individuals out in the hope of bringing them into the shelter and out of the cold.

The Salvation Army will extend these programs as needed through the weekend.

Individuals who want to support these programs may find more information by going to The Salvation Army’s Facebook page at www.Facebook.com/SalArmyLubbock.
