Colder Weather

Gwen Morovitz, Staff Writer

The temperatures are dropping, which of course leads to more comfy sweaters and fall boots. Whether you hate the cold or embrace it like I do, everyone can admit that the cold can be unbearable if you aren’t comfortably bundled up.

Whether you want to hear it or not, many people are without warm jackets for the winter. Some simply can not afford a jacket and others don’t have the resources to get one.

Throughout the holiday season we are constantly reminded to take in consideration of the blessings in our life and have gratitude for them. Unfortunately, because of numerous reasons, a lot of people don’t have much to be thankful for.

Take time to go through your closet. It may take you anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour, but look for clothes you may have grown out of or that just sit in the back of your closet collecting dust. Believe it or not, that small bag of clothes that you may find replaceable or “old”, could make all the difference in someone’s life who desperately needs the warmth this fall and winter.

Donate extra clothes and blankets you and your family have to the Community Storehouse, or somewhere you know will provide help for the homeless and those in need. Doing so will be helping someone stay warm during the “most wonderful time of the year”, which for others, may just be not so wonderful.
