Cold Hands, Warm Hearts

Depending on where you live, temperatures may be in the single digits, or even sub zero! On days like these, we are grateful for a warm coat, heated office, or to work from home.


Others aren't as fortunate. Now is the perfect time to clean out your closets and donate your gently used winter coats, hats, and gloves to your local clothing closet or homeless shelter. Closets not overflowing with extra coats? Reach out to these organizations to find out what items they are in need of, like new, warm socks and pick up an extra pair or two the next time you are at the store.


Many shelters and organizations that provide for those in need will even have an Amazon wish list available so you can purchase much needed items and have them delivered to the right location.
