A group of Regina women are doing their part to help the homeless this Christmas.
Angels For Warmth knitted hundreds of scarves, toques and mittens for the homeless and placed them all over Victoria Park Square Thursday.
Donna Kuran is part of Angels for Warmth.
She says herself and several other women make warm winter clothing for Regina’s homeless.
“This is our third annual scarves in the park initiative, and we’re trying to promote the need for awareness in the city for those who need warmth,” Kuran says. “Last year we put out over 300 scarves in the park, and by the next day they were gone.”
Kuran says they do this because they know not everyone can stay warm during winter.
“We have people that are just walking through the park, and a lot of them you’ll see they don’t have scarves, they don’t have mittens,” Kuran says. “We have people from the Open Door Society who are new to our climate, so they are quite grateful as well to have these types of things available to them.”
Kuran says the organization makes over 12 thousand items and supports over 30 different local charities.
