‘Keep Everyone Warm’ Drive Collects Winter Items For Homeless
The group collected items such as food, clothes, hats and mittens.
DULUTH, Minn. – The fall chill is ramping up for the Northland, and a group is hoping to help keep people in need warm this season.
On Wednesday, the “Keep Everyone Warm” drive was held at Duluth Dodge. Organizers were collecting items like warm winter clothes, sleeping bags and tents, as well as food and hygiene products, like towels and washcloths.
Most of the collected items will go to CHUM, an organization that advocates for the homeless in the Northland community.
“It’s really the community’s way of giving us what we need to make sure that people are safe outside. I really believe that this program saves peoples lives,” development director for CHUM Mary Schmitz said.
There is also donation drop off sites around town, like Gary Milk House in Gary-New Duluth. They will be collecting items and money through Sunday.
