Volunteers with the Salvation Army's Night Watch program served about 50 people with a hot meal Tuesday night.

The program provides food and warm winter clothing to those in need. 

"We've had nights we've had 75, 80, 90 folks and actually had to turn them away. It's good that you're meeting the need, but sad that there's such a need," said Jeff Mikesell, with the Salvation Army.

He says the nonprofit is in need of warm winter coats and blankets.

The Night Watch Program continues through February.
