City Mission Homeless Helped During Deep Freeze

Donating to Planet Aid during Polar VortexWhen the Polar Vortex ripped through Ohio this month, Planet Aid saw a powerful outpouring of support for those in need. Before the cold temperatures hit Newsnet5 Cleveland detailed the need for warm clothing for those less fortunate. As the temperatures dropped well below zero, Planet Aid reported that in less than five days more than 1,200 pounds of blankets, coats, hats, gloves, and toiletries, were dropped in donation boxes. These items were delivered to the City Mission homeless center in Cleveland where they could be distributed. The City Mission has helped 100's of thousands of people in the Cleveland area for more than 100 years.
