A “Thanks In Giving” warm clothing collection for the homeless came just in time as temperatures drop in the area. The successful effort was conducted Thursday, Nov. 19, by Realtors and associates of Coldwell Banker Vanguard Realty at Ponte Vedra Beach.
An abundance of coats, scarves, hats, winter clothing and blankets was collected for Mission House, which serves the homeless of the Beaches area. In addition, $250 was raised during the event and will be given to Mission House to assist in its ongoing efforts.
Mission House provides two meals daily to the homeless at their Jacksonville Beach location, as well as clothing, a place to shower, medical attention and counseling.
