The Salvation Army's annual effort is expected to be the region's largest. "They will put their whole day on hold to help make your life better".

"They sit up there helping so many people and it's all in just the name of the lord", Dowlearn said.

Despite, the cold temperatures, those who came in, enjoyed a plate full of food, like Edith Peoples, who has been enjoying the free meal every Christmas for the past six years. McLemore said the volunteers at the Salvation Army made her feel at home. "You know, we don't want to lose any of the children's programs". "They go out of their way for the community, and they never have enough money to provide for everyone like they need to".
