Dallas’ unseasonably warm winter is changing, a donation project to help keep the homeless warm popped up just in time.
Over the last week 150 scarves were tied to trees and lamp posts in Deep Ellum.
“We just wanted to give the homeless people something to warm them up,” said 11 year old Sarah Conner with the Junior Order of Eagles, the organization that collected and put out the scarves for a holiday charity project.
“We chose (the neighborhood) because homelessness is so vast,” said Courtney Phelan, who helps supervise the program. “That’s one thing we’re trying to teach the kids. Give back to help others. It’s a good thing.”
