Temperatures plunged to record lows and the Salvation Army opened their doors for those who need it most.

Lt. Erik Henry says the weather has affected everyone involved.

People found it hard to navigate... turn to agencies that typically help and get vouchers.

"This winter especially we've been open a majority of, about 28 days in the last 36 days of being able to be open for a warming spot, where we provided coffee, donuts, food, different things like that... opportunities for people just to sit around and watch TV and fellowship," he says.

Lt. Henry says donations are even down because of the cold.

They could really use more for their feeding program and shelter, especially larger size clothing for men and women.
