Salvation Army Reaching Out To Homeless During Brutal Cold Snap

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) - The Salvation Army is welcoming people without shelter to use its eight Twin Cities worship and service centers, as well as its Harbor Light shelter in downtown Minneapolis during the dangerous cold snap.

Staff at Harbor Light are planning for people to be inside for the next 48 hours or more, beginning on Saturday night.

Staff say they have plenty of blankets, extra food and warm beverages on hand.

The Salvation Army says donations of warm clothing and gear from the community is always welcome.

Temperatures in the Twin Cities are expected to fall below zero and hold steady until Tuesday.
