'The Giving Bridge' helps those in need stay warm during the winter

TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) Twin Falls residents are placing scarves, gloves and winter clothing on what's being called the "The Giving Bridge" on Shoshone Street. The gesture is intended to help those who are cold during the winter season stay warm.

"I am Not Lost," a note on one of the scarves hung on the bridge read, "I was handmade for you. If you are cold and need me, please take me."

Community residents who work at Cheverria's across the street from the bridge believe what's happening is good for the community.

We've seen a couple people come here during the day," Danny Vielmas, said. "People seem to appreciate it.

Clarisa Vielmas, also from Cheverria's, agrees with Danny that people seem to appreciate the gesture.

"I think it's an awesome idea," Clarisa said. "We've seen a lot of this like down the street. There's some churches up there that leave like hats and scarves like that too, so I think that's really cool. I mean, why not? Things like that, I think make the community better."

If you feel like participating in the effort to keep Twin Falls residents warm, tie a pair of winter clothing to the bridge.
