Local businesses are helping kids stay warm
As all Greater Clevelanders know, fall may be lovely, but winter is just around the corner. Some Heights residents don’t have the proper gear to stay warm.
Many CH-UH students rely on their schools to supply clothes to help keep them warm and dry. In addition to helping them stay comfortable and healthy, hats, gloves and warm footwear help kids make it to school.
If you were supposed to walk one or two miles to work, would you be likely to do it with frozen fingers and toes?
Our schools play an invaluable role, and they need our help.
From Monday, Oct. 2, through Sunday, Oct. 22, Shawn Paul Salon (2483 Lee Blvd., in the Heights Rockefeller Building) and CLE Urban Winery (2180 Lee Road) will be collecting donations of new hats and warm socks, new or gently used scarves, gloves, mittens, boots and jackets.
Consider making a donation, to help ensure that our kids stay warm and healthy this winter.
