EmbroidMe takes donations for homeless "keep warm" kits

Posted: Updated:

As the temperatures drop and winter approaches, a Lubbock business wants to do something nice for the homeless but they need your help.

Tent city, 13th and Avenue A is home to many of Lubbock's homeless.  The tents were donated and for most everything they own fits inside the tent.

A place called EmbroidMe, 5206 82nd, is taking donations to help keep Tent City residents warm.  The donations go to purchasing items like gloves, scarves, beanies, and blankets.

EmbroidMe is making the items available at cost, so the business can put together a very nice keep-warm kit for $20.

Owner Caleb Harbison says, "It's just that time of year. It's a good time to give back and help others in the community. We just see it as important and a good way to get involved."

Harbison suggests a donation between $1 and $20.
