ALBANY, GA (WALB) –There's a greater need for shelter during this frigid weather. 45 people spent the night at the Albany Salvation Army Tuesday night, that's ten over the limit.

More space had to be created to accommodate the overflow.

But personal hygiene products are running low.  Salvation Army Captain Douglas McClure said  "Soap, and shampoo, and toilet paper. Those kind of things when we have increased people in the shelter. Those are the kind of things we go through really, really quickly. And not always stuff have on hand."

Captain McClure said they can also use extra coats to help keep people warm. If you want to help, you can drop off your donations at the Salvation Army off at 304 West Second Avenue.
