While a deep freeze settles on Saskatchewan, people in Regina have taken to tying hats and scarves to trees and other public places for homeless people to use.
It’s part of a campaign called Chase The Chill, headed up by local woman Dianne Mursell.
Mursell has been soliciting donations of winter wear — hats, mitts, scarves, blankets — and distributing them throughout the city.
The winter bundles are being draped over tree branches and tied to poles, with little notes encouraging people to take them to keep warm.
People spotting the winter gear have been posting pictures to social media with the hashtag #chasethechill.
Facebook page devoted to the campaign reads: “Let’s keep Regina warm and cozy by providing warm winter accessories for the homeless or for those in need by putting them on trees in public places.”
