The True Way Youth Empowerment Foundation launched the Warm and Toasty Campaign to collect socks and scarves for the homeless and those less fortunate. They have asked local businesses and organizations to partner with them to host donation boxes or to donate in an effort to bring a little warmth to those in need during these cold months. True Way has dropped off 10 boxes throughout the West Oak Lane, Germantown, and Mount Airy section of the city will and retrieve them when they are full or on December 21, 2015.

Donation boxes are located:

St. Rep. Dwight Evans office, 7174 Ogontz Ave.,

Newman’s Grill, 5946 Germantown Ave.

St. Rep. Stephen Kinsey, 5952-54 Germantown Ave.

14 District Police Station, 43 W. Haines St.

Clipperz Unisex Hair Salon, 61 Maplewood Mall

Anayah’s Hair Salon, 63 Maplewood Mall

The Business Center, Elder’s Hall, New Covenant Campus

Sen. Art Haywood’s office, 7106 Germantown Ave.

Kare n’ Kreations Hair Studio, 6327 Stenton Ave.

Simons Rec. Center, 7200 Woolston Ave.

True Way’s Executive director, Marie lambert believes that socks are small but are significant in providing warmth, especially during constant moving or transitions and would be needed in a shelter setting. Scarves are versatile and easier to keep track of during extremely cold weather.

Donations will benefit Stenton Family Manor, an emergency shelter for families in crisis and transition, located at 1300 E. Tulpehocken Streets. The donations will be presented on Tuesday, December 22, 2015 at 6 PM.

All are welcome to come and spread some holiday cheer.
