H.O.P.E. Comfort Kits and Community Outreach is collecting items to give to the homeless in Timmins. The organization is looking to create kits filled with hygiene products, snacks and winter clothing that they can give to those in need.

H.O.P.E. Founder Julie Levesque says this issue is pressing and requires the help of the community. She adds that they are hoping to make at least 800 kits.

Those who wish to donate items or time can send H.O.P.E. a message on it’s Facebook page.
