Cpl. Joshua Henry says that on cold nights, homeless people turn up at the Bike Patrol’s office downtown asking for blankets to stay warm. “There are people who cannot stay in the shelters for different reasons. They will come by our office and ask for blankets, which we provide if we have them,” Henry said.
“We are currently out of blankets and are asking for donations of clean or new blankets so that we have a supply to hand out.”
Donation boxes have been set up in the lobby of the Public Safety Center, 725 N. Cherry St.; in the lobby of the Clark Campbell Transportation Center, 100 W. 5th St.; in the lobby of the Stuart Municipal Building, 100 E. First St.; and outside the Bicycle Patrol Office at 414 N. Cherry St. across from the Marriott hotel."
