With Winter right on our front door, it's time to start thinking about how we keep our community safe and warm this holiday season. Not everybody is fortunate enough to have a roof over their heads or a bed to sleep in.

That's why organizations like Miss Carly's are amazing. They look out for the community WITH the help of the community. With the help of local support and donations, they make sure people around the Stateline who are struggling get the help they need.

Miss Carly's posted on Facebook letting people know that they're in need of donations, specifically, items that are extra helpful during the Winter months. Here's what the post said they are in need of right now -

DONATION UPDATE:

We are here to help people who are stuck out in the cold. Every single night, we are passing out...

This is my favorite part of the post, because it truly makes you realize how much something you have laying around the house will be appreciated by somebody who really needs it -

Have you had your eye on that new comforter at Target, but just can't quite take the plunge? Go ahead and treat yourself knowing your old comforter will keep someone warm and safe from the elements, or it will be a prized possession adorning the bed of someone who is getting off the streets.
So don't forget to look out for your community this holiday season. Donations at Miss Carly's are super easy to drop off, just pull up in the alley behind their building at 1125 5th Ave. in Rockford. Stay in your car and they'll grab all your donations making it practically contact free.
