EL PASO- Winter doesn't officially start for another few weeks, but as we've all noticed it certainly feels like it's already here.

Staying warm in these cold temperatures can be especially difficult for El Paso’s homeless. Cecily Vond, a young woman with a kind heart, recently approached some businesses about doing something to help. The Warm Winters project is collecting gloves, blankets and anything else that might help keep someone warm this holiday season. The care packages include snacks and water and will be given out throughout the city.

"The cold is fierce. And the cold falls upon the rich and the poor and the middle. And all people alike. And i think it behooves us, especially this time of season, to be able to go ahead and help these homeless people out there," says Kinley Pon, business owner.

Donations can be dropped off at Kinley's House of Coffee and Teas or at Hope and Anchor on Mesa.
