One woman in Pasco County is on a mission to keep the homeless warm this winter. When it gets cold out, Melissa Cohee gets to work. She’s trying to keep people warm in her own unique way.
« Thought this would be a good idea. It’s for anybody who needs it, anybody who wants it. Not necessarily for homeless. It’s for anybody who wants to be warm, » Cohee said.
Cohee has been tying jackets and sweatshirts to trees around Pasco County. She feels it’s the best way to make sure they get used.
« I just want this to be available to anybody. I don’t want them to have to go into someplace if they feel uncomfortable. They can just take it, » she said.
Over the last few weeks, she said she’s tied at least 500 jackets. And she leaves behind a note, signed with the initials B.H. It stands for a volunteer group she started–Bright Hopes Pasco.
