HEART OF THE CITY – SHARE THE WARMTH

Winter is coming and the weather is cold and will get colder. For those trying to survive on the streets or in cars, proper clothing is vital. As a part of our community outreach program here at Heart of the City and with your help, we will take all collected donations and distribute them among our homeless friends in the community. We will be collecting stocking hats or hats that cover ears, scarves, coats, socks, boots, gloves, blankets, and sleeping bags. All new or gently used.
