Don't Be Cold-Hearted, Give Your Warm Jacket to a Homeless Person

Categories: Community

This jacket wouldn't look good on you anyhow
We're guessing you've noticed that the weather in San Francisco has turned from pleasant to kinda cold. In other words, your second-hand hoodie won't suffice.

But if you think you're cold sitting in your cubicle, try sleeping on the streets tonight. Which brings us to our point: Homeless folks really need your warm blankets and jackets as winter reveals itself this week.

So here's how you can stop being so cold, figuratively speaking.

Buffalo Exchange has partnered with the Homeless Youth Alliance to collect all things warm for San Francisco's neediest residents. The blanket and jacket drive will run through Jan. 13.

Here's what you do: Go to your closet, pull out the jackets you never wear (or the ones that your partner doesn't like on you), get in the car, and drive to any of these Buffalo Exchange locations and drop them off:

1210 Valencia St. (at 23rd St.)
Open 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. every day

1555 Haight St. (between Clayton and Ashbury)
Open 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. every day

2585 Telegraph Ave., Berkeley (at Parker, near UC Berkeley)
(510) 644-9202
Open Monday through Saturday 11 a.m to 8 p.m., Sunday 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
