As we head into one of the coldest nights of the year, Palm Beach County non-profit organizations that help the homeless desperately need your help.

Both St Ann Place in West Palm Beach and Valley of love Ministries in Riviera Beach are out of warm clothes and blankets.

Bins once filled with winter hats are empty. Both programs are out of sleeping bags to hand out. 

Valley of Love Ministries is now open as a cold weather shelter. There’s a shortage of winter supplies to go around.

“We had a full house last night,” said Marie Antoinette Jean-Pierre, the director of Valley of Love Ministries. “We didn't have enough blankets to give them. A lot of people just sleeping on the floor like that. I feel so bad.”

Both Valley of Love Ministries and St. Ann place are looking for gently used winter clothes and blankets.
