With temperatures dipping below freezing on Thursday and Friday this week, The Salvation Army will open its doors once again for overnight emergency shelter for the homeless Dec. 8 & 9 at 7 p.m. The ReCreate Café, The Salvation Army's Day Center located at 800 McCallie Avenue, is busy preparing to serve those in need throughout the frigid nights and during its normal hours during the day.
"Our goal is to partner with other agencies to keep people safe and warm with these low temperatures setting in," said Major Robert Lyle, Chattanooga Salvation Army Area Commander. "However, we need volunteers to help for the shelter.” Volunteers are needed to help serve in the shelter.
