Help keep someone warm this winter
When the days cool down and the nights get chilly, remember the families and individuals who are homeless and on the street.
Arizona's cold winter nights don't seem so bad to those who have warm places to get out of the elements. But for those living outdoors or in their car, warm clothes and a blanket mean a lot. The community can assist by donating items that will keep people warm and protected during the cold nights of winter.
The city of Phoenix is asking people to donate only the following items to be distributed to those who are homeless:
- Jackets, coats, sweat shirts - men's, women's, children's
- Long pants, jeans, and sweats - men's, women's, children's
- New underwear - men's, women's, children's
Donated items are distributed by local homeless outreach teams from Basic Mission, Catholic Charities, Community Bridges, Health Care for the Homeless, Native American Connections Inc./ HomeBase Youth Services, Phoenix Rescue Mission, Set Free Ministry, Southwest Behavioral Health Services PATH Outreach, Stand Up for Kids, The Salvation Army Project HOPE, TERROS and U.S. Vets, Inc.
The program runs from October through March.
|Tax-deductible donations may be delivered to any of the city's three Family Services Centers:
