A Riviera Beach homeless outreach center is asking for the public's help collecting coats and blankets for the needy.

The director at Valley of Love Ministries is collecting the items right now. 

She said the organization is also behind on its rent and may have to close at the end of March.

The organization relies almost entirely on donations to keep running. Director Marie Jean Pierre said donations have dried up recently. The center held a benefit concert which raised less than $100. 

Valley of Love feeds and clothes the homeless in Riviera Beach. It offers job placement services for the community. Volunteers provide help to single mothers.

Its food pantry is open every day. Jean Pierre said it is the only pantry in Palm Beach County with daily hours.
