Salvation Army preps for 60 degree temperature drop

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - As temperatures drop below freezing The Salvation Army's shelter, all 83 beds are expected to be full.

The Salvation Army will also be serving a hot, traditional Thanksgiving meal to over 600 individuals on Thursday. Forty turkeys have been prepared, but more are needed. Over 100 volunteers are scheduled to help, but the Salvation Army welcomes any individual who wants to give a hand on Thursday. Volunteers can come to The Salvation Army shelter at 1614 Avenue J any time after 11:00 AM.

Thursday evening, The Salvation Army will hit the streets through its Survive the Night program to provide a hot Thanksgiving meal to everyone who did not make it to the shelter for dinner.

This program will run on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights this weekend because of the expected cold weather. Volunteers will provide blankets, scarves, hats, socks and gloves to individuals who choose to stay on the streets. A hot meal will also be provided.
