The Salvation Army is asking for your help to keep people warm this winter. It is part of the "Operation Deep Freeze." The Salvation Army has officially declared Operation Deep Freeze. When the temperature drops to 35 degrees or 40 with precipitation, the organization will open our doors for anyone seeking overnight shelter.

According to the organization's spokesperson Corey Leith, officials will make the call at 9 a.m. the morning of if the operation is in effect. The organization will be accepting anyone seeking shelter up until 9 p.m. It gives people a chance to take a warm shower, eat a hot meal and have somewhere warm to sleep at night.

Operation Deep Freeze is going on now until March 30th at The Salvation Army Tucson Hospitality House.

Donations are in need to help keep people warm this winter.

Warm clothes, such as coats, socks, and sweaters, hats, shoes and gloves are needed.

If you wish to donate items, you can drop them off at any Naughton's plumbing, any Vantage Bowling Centers, or the Hospitality House at 1002 N. Main Ave.
