Helping those in need keep warm this winter

By  | 

TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) The weather is getting colder which means bundling up before you head outside. One local church is making sure no one is cold this winter.

The Twin Falls United Methodist Church on Shoshone Street East has a different look. Tied to the railings are hats and scarves with notes indicating that they are not lost, just looking for someone in need to keep warm. This is all part of the church's annual event Warm-Up Twin Falls.

"We have a lot of knitters in our church and there's a lot of knitters in the community. It's a way that they can use their gifts and blessings to be able to help out others. So we just hang them on the railings and people are free to come and take whatever they like and would help them out,” said Rev. Mike Hollomon.

The church collects donations from the congregation and community throughout the year to be able to give back when the weather turns cold. This is the third year the church has been able to help people warm-up.
