Organizers are asking the public for help in gathering donations for the seventh annual Gift of Warmth, which will take place at 10 a.m. on Nov. 18 at Skinner’s Hill.

This event gathers gently used or new articles of winter clothing and leaves them out on the fence for any to take who are in need.

Collection for the event is taking place now and organizers are looking for scarves, gloves, mittens and hats as well as socks, which is a new addition.
