Bring Some Warmth Campaign
Wednesday night throughout North Central Florida temperatures will start to take a dip into the 40s.
For some families that means tough choices are ahead
At Saint Leo University in Gainesville, they think no one should have to suffer in the cold.
They are collecting blankets, coats, long pants, hats, mittens and other winter essentials for low income families and the homeless as part of their first ever Bring Some Warmth campaign.
The effort is being coordinated by the university's Bachelor of Social Work Program.
For more information on what they are collecting and where you can drop your items off, call 352-395-5926 or 352-367-1192
The items collected during the Bring Some Warmth Campaign will be donated to Children's Home Society, Partnership for Strong Families, Department of Children and Families and the Alachua County District Library Coalition.
