Cold weather kits for the homeless

It looks like we’re in for a cold snap. I’m stocking up on Cuddle Duds as we speak. I can’t stand the cold. But there are people who have to endure more than my 30-second jog to my car. For the area’s chronic homeless, Micah Ecumenical Ministries is collecting Cold Weather Survival kits made up of long johns, socks and hand warmers.

Bring them to Micah Hospitality Center, 1013 Princess Anne St. or call 540/479-4116, ext. 11.
