FARGO — Businesses in the metro are banding together in an effort to help spread warmth and kindness this winter.

Warm Hands, Warm Hearts is a community outreach movement created to inspire others to give when they can, take if they need without charge, discrimination or obligation.

Inspired by Heidi Holland, owner of Beans Coffee Bar, partners from the Downtown Community Partnership (DCP), FM Coalition to End Homelessness, Homeless Health Services, Business Improvement District (BID), and Gladys Ray Shelter came together, discussed the concern and determined the mission of the movement:

Warmth-sharing “trees” are located throughout the community to provide new or gently used gloves, scarves, socks and hats for people in need.
