It's time for the annual "Warming Communities" event. Every October over the past seven years I have collected coats, hats, mittens, scarves and boots and donated them to the families throughout the metropolitan area through A Wider Circle. Some years we have collected nearly 400 items and I am proud. Please let us know if you need us to pick up your donation. We will also have a box at the SweetFrog in the Woodmoor Shopping Center in Silver Spring. Help us make a difference! Let's keep families warm this Winter!
