Baby It’s Cold Outside….

Brrr! Baby, it’s cold outside! A no-Brainer, right?! Temps reading -1 degrees, dogs who don’t want to go for a walk-everything is frozen, cold, and coated in a white frost. You and I might be inside where it is safe and warm-at least warmer than if we were homeless. Like any other city Asheville does have a homeless population, and there are many great resources for those needing shelter and warmth in this excruciatingly cold temperatures. If you would like to volunteer to help the homeless men, women, and children stay warm, fed, and safe, here is a list of places you can contact to offer your hands and heart: AshevilleHomeless.com – when you enter the site click on the ‘Community Resource’ link for an entire list of local resources that you can volunteer at – in the cold or all year round.

Asheville is very conscious about shopping local and supporting our local business owners and economy.
