ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Frigid temperatures caused shelters to fill up fast Monday night.
Staff and volunteers at the Salvation Army shelter expected to be full after temperatures got down into the 20s.
Volunteers fixed a meal for the guests before they came inside. We caught up with one man waiting outside before doors opened.
He usually sleeps outside but he said last night was just too cold.
"I live in a tent and I just know my way there but I can't sleep there tonight because it's going to be 21 degrees," said George Dyous.
The Salvation Army also has a new day shelter open on Monroe Street. Homeless people can wash clothes, look for work, and find out about other services available to them.

We're just over a week away from the annual Albany Christmas parade, and this year organizers need your help.
The Festival of Christmas Trees began Friday in Sycamore. Their goal is to spread holiday cheer by giving back to the community.
Local businesses spent Friday preparing for their busiest shopping day of the year -- Small Business Saturday.
With the holiday season upon us, it's important to think about your furry friends too.
People formed a line around the Best Buy in Valdosta just to get inside so they could take advantage of the sweet deals.
