Gift of Warmth 2020

Season greetings!

I'm excited to share our 5th annual Gift of Warmth with you. This is an event I created to extend the holiday cheer to those who are less fortunate than us. For the last five years, I’ve collected new or used coats and goodies to pass out to the homeless.

This year is going to look a little different due to the pandemic. We are looking to collect new items rather than used ones. We will be practicing social distancing during our pick-ups and exchanges as well.

 We will be setting up at St James Park on December 24th, at 9:00 am. During this time, we will have 1 or 2 tables with pre-made bags ready to pass out.

 

Here are the details on how you may participate:

 

1) Gift Donation: *NEW*

Black or dark colored jackets (preferably large sizes)

Face Masks

Hand Sanitizer

Toilet paper

Women hygiene products

Backpacks

Laundry detergent (travel sizes)

Socks

Lite blankets

Gloves

Beanies

Towels

Ponchos

 

2) Monetary Donation:

.

We will be accepting donations via Venmo, Paypal or Go Fund Me. This money will go towards anything we are lacking in the list above.

 

3) Volunteers:

This year we decided that volunteers are welcomed but must comply with social distancing and wearing protective gear due to risk of exposure to Covid 19. This year we will not be serving hot food but we will have to go bags, in hopes that things will go quick and easy. If you wish to volunteer, please contact me on the side for further information.

 

Please direct any questions to myself or one of the hosts. I know it’s been a hard year for a lot of us but I’m hopping we gather enough love and support to spread to all those who may need it.

Together, we can finish 2020 strong and make a positive impact in our community!

 

Thank you for your generosity!

Virtual hugs and Love!
