If you’re in Centre County and need some warmer clothes the Bellefonte Police department may be able to help you out.
This Christmas tree, dubbed the “Warming Tree” by the Bellefonte Police department is a place where scarfs, beanies or gloves can be donated or picked up to help those in need get through the long cold months.
Beckie Romig, homeless advocate in State College, says she’s known homeless people who have had frostbite on their feet.
She says having a place where you can get a second pare of socks will make a huge difference for people on the street.
Beckie thinks it’s great how the Bellefonte Police department keeps the warming tree up for those in need, well past Christmas.
