Salvation Army opens additional beds for cold weather


Decatur - The Salvation Army opened a cold weather cot homeless shelter.

They have turned one of their training rooms into a small emergency homeless shelter by providing cots, pillows and blankets for an additional 25 people. "We will also feed these people dinner and breakfast in the morning before they head out the door," said Jeff Mueller, Salvation Army Shelter Director.

The Salvation Army will keep the additional beds operating until March 2014.
