You Can Help The Homeless Here In Amarillo Through This Weather
We see countless memes going around saying that if you are cold so are your pets. Make sure you bring them inside. This is one hundred percent true. I feel bad enough making my dog, Chipper, go outside to use the restroom. She hates going out. So I put a puppy pad out just in case when I leave for work.
Guess what? There are others we need to worry about during all this crazy Panhandle weather. I am talking about our countless numbers of homeless people. It is sad how many you see begging around the city for food or money. Then there are the ones you just see sleeping on the streets. When the weather is like this of course they can not stay outside. So what are they to do? It's great to see all the posts about exactly how you can help.
Amarillo Housing First posted a lot about their Code Blue Program. It helps Amarillo help out in such a dire situation. Here is what they posted:
