Group donates blankets for homeless

BIRMINGHAM (WBRC) - More than 100 homeless people received blankets as part of Operation Warming the Heart Monday.

Members of the Order of the Eastern Star, Mizpah Grand Chapter handed out blankets to the needy at a firehouse shelter as they were concerned about those who don't have a home, especially since temperatures have been so cold lately.

"We wanted to do something to give back and something they could use and take with them and use more than one day," Tiffany Caldwell of the Order of the Eastern Star said.

Nearly 20 Fairfield High School students also took park in the day of giving back.
