DULUTH, MN-- Cold temperatures and snow are always a challenge for people without a place to call home, but this year, the pandemic is expected to make it even more challenging.
That's why several organizations came together to host the annual "Community Connect" event Friday.
They handed out hygiene items, winter clothes, and other necessities to people who are homeless or struggling financially.
Organizers hope this event will be a life line during a very difficult time.
"Especially as so many people are just struggling in different ways economically right now, it's awesome to be able to help in just a small way in giving them an winter coat," said Rosalyn Horn, Director of Residential Services for the Salvation Army.
If you or someone you know missed Friday's event, there'snother one scheduled for next Friday.
You can stop by the Damiano Center in downtown Duluth from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on October 30th.
