CLOTHES DRIVE
There might not be snow, but the weather is cold and the homeless are colder. For the fifth year and through Monday, Nov. 19, Rico Brand is collecting winter supplies needed to survive the Utah winter. That means coats, socks, blankets and other items. After that, Warm the Homeless #SLC will deliver the items directly to the homeless in Downtown Salt Lake City, Liberty Park, Fairmont Park, Library Square, Beck Street and the 9th & 9th areas, as well as The Road Home and the Rio Grande area.
