DON’T WAIT FOR SEVERE WEATHER TO START HELPING!
Outreach providers need winter gear they can pass out now, so folks outside are ready for the cold, and to have in reserve during an emergency. Having the right gear staged in the right places before a crisis will help provider’s better focus on direct services and life-saving efforts in the moment. Needed items include warm socks, waterproof gloves or mittens, waterproof winter coats, lightweight blankets, fleece hats, tarps, hand warmers, and rain ponchos.
