Yarn Harbor organized a drive Saturday to donate warm clothing around the Duluth area. Volunteers dropped hats, mittens, and scarves around the city to allow anyone in need of warm clothing to pick up.

"We hang them on signs, buses, fences, bus stops just so they are available for anyone who needs them and people can pick them up themselves or bring them to someone who they know needs one." Joelle Galo, coordinator of "Warm Up The City" said.

The items were labeled "I am not lost!I need a good home! If you need me, please take me home with you!"

Yarn Harbor has distributed 300 winter items across the city so far, including to UMD, St. Scholastica, Lincoln Park and many more places.
