In the spirit of giving back the Upper Room homeless shelter held it’s annual Blizzard of Blankets at Perry Square. 

Each year with this event people donate blankets, coats, hats, boots and more to Erie’s less fortunate. With the arrival of the cold weather, now would be a perfect time to see if you have any unwanted outerwear in your closet. 

The event’s goal is to help our fellow citizens. 

“This is wonderful, every year it grows and every year the demand grows as well,” said Chris Taylor.

Twenty volunteers helped out in this event.
