"Trying to keep warm," said Andrea Isaac, a member of Haven for Hope's Recovery Program. "A lot of jackets, a lot of hoodies, a lot of caps that we need to keep our heads hands and feet warm."

Aside from individual donations, several local businesses have also donated items, including Medtronics, which donated over 120 winter jackets, and McDonalds, which gave 600 blankets.

Sara Pfeifer, with Haven for Hope, said bed sheets were also donated by The Hyatt and Westin Hotels.

"This is just to name a few organizations and community members that we're extremely thankful for their contributions," Pfeifer said. "Especially in light of the cold snap that came in this morning."

Haven for Hope is not only accepting donations, but they are also accepting volunteers, especially over the holiday season.

Interested parties should contact: volunteer@havenforhope.org or call the Volunteer Main Line 210-220-2549.
