This holiday season and throughout the colder months, there are “Warmth Giving Trees” placed throughout downtown and within the Fargo-West Fargo community.
This community outreach movement from the DCP was Inspired by Heidi Holland, the owner of Beans Coffee Bar. With Downtown Community Partnership, FM Coalition to End Homelessness, Homeless Health Service, Business Improvement District (BID), and Gladys Ray Shelter as partners, we are happy to introduce, Warm Hands Warm Hearts: a giving tree that will host new to gently used hats, mittens, scarves, and socks. These trees were created to inspire others to give what they can, and for those in need to take what they need. No charge, judgement, or obligation is given or expected at these trees.
Warm Hands, Warm Hearts depends on donations from people like you, people who want to make a difference in the world, and recognize that a small donation can go a long way towards a huge impact on improving the lives of others.
