Another bone-chilling cold night means another night at the shelter for those with no where else to go.
But some local shelters are reaching capacity.
Several men seeking shelter at Cherry Street Mission say they haven't got much rest the past few nights, due to all of the crowd and commotion.
But att the Cherry Street Mission, they're not only seeing more people look for a place to stay, they're also dealing with the need for a place to relax during the day.
In addition to beds, the mission is also seeking a greater demand for items. Cherry Street Mission is asking for help with donations such as coffee, tea, socks, coats or other winter gear.
