There are tens, and sometimes hundreds who don't have a place to sleep at night. When weather conditions reach freezing levels, it can be life-threatening.
Salvation Army's Disaster Alert Response Team (DART) has been stepping in for years to provide shelter for homeless people. Even if they don't want to return to shelter, volunteers still help them survive the night.
"We're gonna provide just enough to get them through the night. We've got gloves, blankets, food and refreshments," Major David Worthy said.
The bus usually sticks to its normal route, and some nights are much busier than others. Recently, DART has received some much needed help from the Lubbock Police Department.
"They'll give us pointers on where to go. They'll let us know if they have a number of folks congregating that we can go and pick up and then we roll there," Worthy said.
Major Wright has a strong connection to DART and a lot of that has to do with its saying.
"The thing that makes this most meaningful to me is hope. There are four words on the back of this truck that say 'hope is on the way' and what the Salvation Army's job to do is provide hope," Wright said.
The Salvation Army needs jackets, blankets, socks and other warm clothes to pass out on these routes. To donate, click here.
