Jacob Zellner, Founder of Project Keep Warm:
“I personally know how hard it is to be sleeping on the streets, with only the clothes on my back.
Project Keep Warm is dedicated to collecting blankets for the homeless and less fortunate as a way to give back. A lot of people helped me when I didn’t have anything, so I would like to do the same for others.
Please help me in collecting blankets, tarp, tents, warm jackets, rain gear… from now until November. I will pick a date in November to distribute the blankets.
Thank you! And let’s help keep people warm this winter.”
Epic Fitness will take donations until October 31st. Please bring new or gently used items that are listed above. Hats, socks and gloves are also needed. South Salem Ace Hardware is also going to collect for Project Keep Warm. We are excited to have them on board!
