BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — One Birmingham organization is helping those in the most critical need this holiday season. Be A Blessing Birmingham is stepping up to host a Holiday Blessings drive this Saturday at Linn Park.
Be A Blessing Birmingham started just over a year ago. The group provides coats, meals, blankets, hygiene products, and more for homeless people around Birmingham.
As the temperatures drop, the group is collecting coats again, as well as hand warmers, emergency blankets, winter clothing, and more to hand out. Be A Blessing Birmingham handed out more than 100 coats last weekend during an event.
This Saturday, December 17th, the group will host a Holiday Blessing. Be A Blessing Birmingham will hand out new, wrapped gifts to the homeless in and around Linn Park. They will also serve a Christmas-themed lunch, complete with chicken & dressing, ham, sides, dessert, and drinks.
