FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT)- This annual event gives scarves, hats, gloves, and coats in public places so those people in need regardless of income can help themselves.

Each scarf includes a hand tag inviting anyone to claim it.

Left over scarves will be taken down before dark and donated to local shelters.

"If someone is passing through the park and they're cold and they need something warm, we have signs that say 'Take me. I'm not lost', and it's kind of an indirect way to donate things to people who need it," Lavell Stabler, Co-Organizer, said.

This event is put together by Food Not Bombs Fort Wayne, and Stabler said this is their way of fighting the war on poverty.
