The Open Door Mission says it is getting ready to help those in need over the weekend when another round of frigid temperatures is expected.

The shelter is preparing more food to serve for those seeking a hot meal over the weekend.

Volunteers will also be providing gloves to those who leave the campus.

At the Lydia House, 40 women and children are sleeping on floor mats in overflow.

Organizers say more space heaters, toilet paper and men's gloves are needed.
