Winter coat drive being held for Wiregrass homeless
DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) - As temperatures continue to decrease this winter, a local woman is trying to spread some warmth to the Wiregrass homeless population.
Organizer Kim Lovelace is holding a winter coat drive. She’s collecting new and gently-used coats, shirts, pants, socks, scarves, and hats.
There are a few drop off locations, including Dream Chasers, Time Youth Impact Center, and Psalms 30:2 Scrubs and Novelty.
Lovelace says she needs the community’s help to meet a growing need.
“Not only COVID, but the homeless community needs us,” Lovelace said. “A lot of times, people over look them. And I believe they need us the most right now. You know, it’s growing. The homeless community is growing. They are everywhere, and if you are able to give back, I think you should.”
Items can be donated now through January 4th. On January 9th, those items will be given out along with a hot meal at Momma Tina’s Mission House.
