With bitter cold coming, Salvation Army prepares shelters for homeless people

NORFOLK, Va. — Maj. Donald Dohmann, the Salvation Army Hampton Roads Area Commander, said when temperatures drop, the men’s and women’s shelters in Norfolk start to fill up.

“Typically this time of year, we’ll see an increase of need,” he said.

He told 13News Now on Thursday that kitchen staff were preparing to feed more people at both shelters this weekend. They expect to double the amount of food volunteers normally serve.
