Being homeless is already hard enough. Unfortunately summer doesn't last all year so it gets even worse when the temperatures begin to drop.
Each year me and a few friends go outside to find the more unfortunate and try to support them with warm clothes, blankets, gloves, hats, sleeping bags, warm meals and tea. There's a cheap hotel in town where we can even rent a room or two for the worst nights for a few of them.
Our town also has a charity department offering coffee once or twice a week but that's not even covering the minimum needs. After a coffee they still search for the nearest bridge or bench in the park and keep freezing.
All the needed stuff is purchased from our personal accounts and a few donations from others. Donations aren't limited to just money. Clothes and food donations are always welcome. The more help, the more people can be helped.
