With temperatures recently plummeting to arctic levels, Hospitality House of Northwest N.C. recognizes the community’s urgent need for proper winter clothing. In response, a free winter clothing giveaway, “Embrace the Warmth,” is scheduled for February 8, from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m., and all community members are invited to attend.

“Bitter cold temperatures pose a significant threat to the well-being of our most vulnerable community members,” states Hospitality House of Northwest N.C. executive director Tina B. Krause. “Thanks to the generosity of Mast General Store, Footsloggers, The Sock Factory, and so many supporters who have donated so far this winter, we are proud to host and to provide all that we can to anyone in need.” 

The event, being held in the agency’s Community Kitchen dining room at 338 Brook Hollow Rd. Boone, NC., will have scarves, gloves, socks, coats, beanies, and hygiene kits available for men, women, and children without any clothing limits. Hot chocolate will also be served.
