Salvation Army helps homeless during freeze

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - The Salvation Army shelter in Tucson is
caring for more than 100 homeless people Friday as a hard freeze drove down temperatures in southern Arizona.

Shelter program manager Yoli Hasler tells The Associated Press more people than usual stayed at the regular
shelter and motels the Salvation Army uses when it's freezing.

The National Weather Service in Tucson says the overnight
temperature was 25 degrees and is expected to be in the 20's again New Year's morning.

Hasler says the Salvation Army is in dire need of gloves and
shoes in men's sizes 9 1/2 to 10. She says without donations they can't provide what the homeless need to stay warm.
