Do you have winter clothes, sweaters, coats, hats, scarves, socks, blankets, towels, and other cold weather items piling up in your home? Put these items to good use and help us warm Charlotte this year!
Environmental exposure-related deaths, hypothermia and frostbite pose an especially high threat to homeless individuals around the world during the winter months. Without shelter and often without proper protection against the elements, those in need face constant decisions between food, medicine and sufficient attire for cold weather. It comes as no surprise that cold weather attire often takes the lowest priority in that scenario.
Simplicity has partnered with other local business owners to do some real, tangible good in the community this winter by founding Warm Charlotte. These organizations are heavily involved with Charlotte’s homeowners, and in various ways, we come across many people who own more “stuff” than they really want… or need. Many of these items are often thrown away or transferred to storage facilities, never to be seen or used again. We want to change that paradigm.
There are many ways in which you can help, the first of which is to bring winter clothes and other cold-weather items to our mobile donation centers on ANY Sunday in November. We will be in the parking lots at various shopping centers around the Charlotte area. We will then deliver the donations to the shelters and families that need them most. Follow us on Facebook or Twitter to receive updates on this important cause. You can also make a monetary donation to the cause – every donation, in any amount helps!!
