OKLAHOMA CITY – As colder temperatures move into the state, a local organization is reaching out to those who may be left out in the cold.

The Salvation Army is opening the doors to a couple emergency shelters on Thursday to give men, women and families a safe place to go.

The shelters provide warm beds, coats, winter caps, gloves, socks, hot coffee, extra food and care for those in need.

Organizers say the shelters will be open for 24 hours.

Those emergency shelters are located at the following:

  • The Salvation Army, located at 501 S. Harvey in Oklahoma City
  • The Salvation Army, located at 318 E. Hayes in Norman.

Officials say the City Rescue Mission will also be open to those seeking shelter from the storm.

Authorities say anyone is welcome who has not been convicted of a felony or violent crime.
