It’s that time of year again, and the nights are getting colder in the Bay Area. It dips into to the low 40s in San Francisco, and even if you’re not cold, you know that some people out there are. All around us, there are people who don’t have enough blankets to snuggle up under or the right clothes to ward off the chills, who aren’t as fortunate as you or I may be. The holiday season makes us cinch up imaginary collars, and reflect on what we can do to help.
I see this all the time around the Bay Area, especially when I’m talking to people who want to redesign their reach-in closet. Their lives are full of clutter, and so many say, “What am I going to do with all this stuff once I get my closet organized?” A lot of the time—especially around the holidays—they decide to donate their extra clothes to those who need it most.
