Crazy cold weather expected, chill-factor ( feeling temperature ) minus 50 degrees ( -17,2 celsius) source website : www.weather.gov...

The point of this thread is a heads up to help your fellow people. Give a sandwich to someone homeless in this cold weather, maybe a cup of coffee would be better
.

We often forget the people that are struggling without a roof, exposed to this kind of weather.

Maybe you have a blanket or 2 that you can miss, maybe something more. Maybe contact someone to give a heads up. Whatever you can do, it can and maybe will be a different day for the ones that are confronted the hardest way.

Just wanted to thank you for your time and extra attention.

Good day!

Why do anything? When you can just preach to an online forum and feel great about one's self?

Well maybe...that includes highlighting the issue through a medium called the internet?

Instructions not clear enough and I got locked in the broom closet for an hour.

On more serious note I have been helping out.
Other things you can do as well is buy blankets at local thrift shops and pass them out
or even jackets and such.
It's easier to give "gift certificates" to these places then cash because they have to use it there.

Also been trying to get our local places that has room (meeting hall, senior center that just sits empty)
for over nighters and or a day or two , to open the doors. Yet all say the same thing, would cost to much and
it's to much hasle.

It's a shame that these places don't put some cots down and open the doors for people to be warm
but they will open them up for a small meeting ( 15 business owners ) to brag about there businesses.

Your actions are excellent! Surely there is now at least one person thanking you.

Also good advice, i agree about the part that shops need to do this more often. If you see how much things shops throw away, these things can benefit people just with small action. No loss only gain.

In an environment of -40 below then a person / human being WILL GET frostbite in around 10 mins....

Serious stuff......

Instead of donating winter stuff-gloves, jackets, scarves, socks, footwear, heavy clothes, and even sleeping bags/blankets, etc., you don't like or want to use anymore, hand it out to those on the street instead of donating to thrift.

Hopefully there are notices or some kind of memos going around about the extreme frostbite potential for those who have yet to experience it.
