The St. Francis House wants to make sure those who are in need have the opportunity to stay warm this winter.
The recent cold snap has caused the St. Francis House to hand out numerous hats, gloves and socks. Now they are in need of more donations and social media has played a big part in their effort to collect more items.
"This is my third year on Facebook doing this and the response is just amazing. People want to help," Homeless Advisory Board Member Tom Wingert said.
Wingert, along with several others who are involved in the project with St. Francis House, want to make sure people are dressed properly during the cold winter months.
"If someone stops by the house and visibly needs a pair of gloves, they will actually provide those items," Wingert said. "They'll actually provide those items for free and just hand those out and when they run out, they call me and we deliver more."
"If it wasn't for the St. Francis House, I wouldn't be here," Jason Wolfe said.
Wolfe knows first hand how important it is to help those in need stay warm this season.
"Make sure that we have your basic needs, warm socks, hats, gloves, kind of things that we take for granted when we are on our feet. Not everyone looks down on you for being in the position that you're in, people are actually willing to give you a second chance or a third chance," Wolfe said.
A donation of $5 will help buy a pair of gloves, socks, a hat and a water bottle. The St. Francis House is accepting donations all winter long.
The St. Francis House also works together with Safe Home and The Good Shepherd Center. The organization will share all donations with Safe Home and The Good Shepherd Center.
