Hillyard Blog

Blankets needed

The blog got a call from the Outlaw Cafe (5012 N. Market Street) today saying that there's been an increase in homeless people camping and sleeping around Hillyard. It rained a lot last night, and the nice folks at The Outlaw took in a wet, cold, pregnant and homeless woman this morning. Calls are being made to get her some permanent help, but in the meantime the cafe is asking for donations of clean, whole blankets, tube socks and hats. Drop off donations during opening hours - or bring blankets to donate on Saturday, during the Hillyard Hop.
