Salvation Army's Night Watch Launched to Combat Cold and Hunger

Nov 27, 2018

Last night marked the first night of the Salvation Army's Night Watch, where homeless and near-homeless members of the community can warm up and get a hot meal.  Three trucks and 12 volunteers took to the streets to make sure no one was left out in the cold.  The trucks make two stops each in north, south and central Omaha.  One of the drop off sites is at 26th and Leavenworth where several people went to get their hot meal as well as some hats and gloves. It's an opportunity many appreciate.  Night Watch will run Monday through Friday until March 1. 

The Salvation Army said supplies are low this season, so donations are appreciated.  To donate or volunteer, visit https://centralusa.salvationarmy.org/omaha/winter-night-watch/
