Keep Others Warm This Winter  

With a harsh winter right around the corner, it´s officially time for residents of Seattle to bundle up. The air is getting colder and colder by the day, so dust off those puffy jackets and wooly socks. With such a freezing winter approaching, please remember that there are many who lack the resources to keep warm. Not everyone is as fortunate enough to return to their homes to a cozy bed every night. I urge readers to donate any jackets, scarves, hats, socks, sweaters, pants, umbrellas, gloves, and blankets they’re not using 

Below is a list of places people can donate as well as receive free or reduced winter clothes:
