Staffers say if you have old sleeping bags, blankets, hats, socks, gloves or anything that can help keep someone warm, please bring it in

ANCHORAGE – We’re not done with winter just yet.

There are cold nights ahead and a lot of people continue to camp or sleep outdoors.

Sleeping bags are in high demand at Bean’s Café.

The nonprofit says as soon as they get one in, it goes out the door with someone in need.

That’s why Bean’s Café is urgently calling on the public to help.

Staffers say if you have old sleeping bags, blankets, hats, socks, gloves or anything that can help keep someone warm, please bring it to the café.

“It can mean life or death for a client if they’re out in the elements,” said Bean’s Café Director Lisa Sauder.

Donations can be dropped off Monday through Friday, between 7:30 a.m. and 5 p.m.

Bean’s says anything helps.
