Anonymous Source of Warmth for People in Need in Wilkes-Barre

WILKES-BARRE--- There’s an anonymous source of sweetness on Public Square in Wilkes-Barre.

Someone tied up several bags with gloves and hats for people in need.

A note on each says, “I’m not lost – if you need this keep warm, please take it."

“The most genuine, charitable giving is done when nobody is looking and not for a reward. It’s nice to see,” Chad Flack of Harveys Lake said.

Even in this freezing cold weather, people said this is a good display of the warm spirit of Wilkes-Barre.

“I hope it's spirit of good things to come,” Flack said.

With dangerously cold wind chills, the National Weather Service says it can take just ten minutes for frostbite to set in on exposed skin.

People in Wilkes-Barre said this gesture should go a long way for people who may not have the means to bundle up.

“I actually think it's wonderful because there are a lot of homeless people in Wilkes-Barre and it's pretty freezing out so it does help them a lot,” Travis Horst of Wilkes-Barre said.

    This is patriotism! This is what it means to be “christian”. This is what it really and honestly looks like to “make America great again.”

      You’re kidding me, right? There wouldn’t be any homeless in America if we had built the wall I’ve been demanding be built and my supporters voted me in to accomplish! Of course, the fake scientists are telling us its “global warming;” big laugh, as you peons are complaining its cold. If Congress enacted my clean coal policies, you all could be burning coal to keep warm, too. Keep all this in mind when Barletta runs for Senate, as I need like-minded people to accomplish my goals.
