Clothing Donations Warm Up Harrisburg Residents

Handler Henning and Rosenberg is following a local pay-it-forward type story and we will be happy to provide updates as they become available.

A good deed goes a long way sometimes, as is evident by the trees along Front Street in Harrisburg. Anonymous donors are leaving gloves, scarves and hats in the trees’ branches for those in need during frigid temperatures. Front Street is known for the scenic view of the Susquehanna River, and the trees along the walking path.

Now, those trees are being decorated with scarves, hats and gloves to keep people warm. There is a note attached that says “If you need me to help keep you warm, please take me” and people are buzzing about it. Donating clothing is always a great idea, especially during the brutal Pennsylvania winters. If there is anything you can do to help your fellow Harrisburg residents by donating some warm clothing, contact your local shelter, or if you prefer, visit the trees on Front Street.
