You can donate winter gear for the homeless
YAKIMA Wa. -- You could potentially save someone's life this winter, by giving something as simple as a warm blanket.
Triumph Treatment Services is collecting cold weather gear for the homeless and handing out 300 backpacks full of gear on December 21st for National Homeless Memorial Day.
Kimberly Hitchcock with Triumph says they have been doing this for several years to bring awareness on homeless services around the city.
“To talk about homelessness in our community and to ensure that people have access to the things that they need and to hopefully keep anyone else from dying due to the cold weather," said Hitchcock.
People can donate winter hats, scarves, gloves, toothpaste, shampoo and much more.
The backpacks will be given out at the Union gospel Mission from 1:30 to 3:30 in the afternoon.
