Sleeping Bags Help Homeless

When temperatures dip below freezing it can be brutal being outside even for a few minutes. But, what if you had to sleep in the cold?
Employees at the Arkansas Dream Center in Little Rock wanted to protect the homeless from the low temperatures by handing out 30 degree sleeping bags which can keep people warm even in frigid conditions. However, buying the bags costs quite a bit of money.

So the center hit social media, and in just one day, it received enough donations to pay for 140 sleeping bags. Money came in everywhere from Ohio to Florida. "These are going to take care of the people most of the time and when it gets as cold as it's getting there's nothing that's going to do you any good. We'll bring them back in the house, love on them here and give them a good, safe place to stay warm," said Drew Davis with the Arkansas Dream Center.

The Center opened Sunday as a warming center for people living on the streets or those without heat. Churches and other local organizations in little rock also donated things like coats, gloves and blankets.
