Jaycie Hodges aims to keep citizens warm with a blanket drive.
As the current Miss Tree City Iris Teen, Hodges chose to help homeless as her platform and organized a blanket drive for this Saturday at Intrepid Home Health from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. “We were talking to someone who’s involved with the HOME program,” said Hodges, “and they said, during the winter time, they need a lot of blanket donations to keep people warm.”
Hodges will be collecting blanket and money donations to give to HOME to help the local homeless population. She said she’s a little nervous to be in charge of something, but everything has been going smoothly so far. The drive will take place this Saturday, Nov. 19 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. at the Intrepid Home Health, located at 350 Caldwell Street.
Money and Blanket donations will be accepted to help keep homeless people of Warren County warm for the winter.
