Salvation Army seeking donations of winter weather clothing

From Salvation Army Lubbock:

With freezing temperatures approaching, many Lubbock residents are bundling up in scarves and gloves and looking forward to a warm cooked meal. However, some folks across Lubbock do not have that luxury because they are living on the streets.

To help them out, The Salvation Army Lubbock is seeking donations of blankets and winter weather accessories. Blankets, gloves, scarves, socks, and warm caps (beanies) will provide warmth for residents of The Salvation Army Shelter and the homeless individuals of Lubbock reached through the "Survive the Night" program.

Whenever the temperature drops below freezing before 6 p.m., The Salvation Army rolls out their mobile kitchen in an effort called the "Survive the Night" program. They use their mobile kitchen, or Canteen, to hand out hot food to people who might otherwise not have them. In addition to food, The Salvation Army also offers up warm accessories (gloves, scarves, socks, warm caps) and blankets through the charitable donations of Lubbock residents.

"When temperatures and conditions reach the point of freezing, we open our shelter doors to those living in life threatening situations on the streets. We believe no one should suffer from the cold or go hungry. Everyone in Lubbock should have a hot meal and warm place to stay during those freezing, winter nights,"  said Social Services Director Carol World.

Donations can be made at 1111 16th st. or call (806) 741-1325 to have donations picked-up.

Donation items: Blankets, Gloves, Scarves, Socks, and warm Caps (beanies).
