Columbia, SC (WLTX) -- The weather is starting to get colder, especially at night. But two women in the Rosewood community are looking to spread the warmth.
Kate McDade and Amanda Dawn Hazen are collecting scarves, hats, gloves and blankets and tying them to trees and poles in the Rosewood neighborhood.
"It's something that takes five seconds. You stop at the end of the street, you put one on the stop sign of your street, on your block," said McDade.
On Saturday, the two women hung up the clothes in 17 different locations, each with a personalized note. And 24 hours later:
"Somebody needed 17 of something. They're gone. All of them," said Hazen.
McDade and Hazen are not after the recognition or glory, but the start of a movement to help those in need.
"We just want to start something that can make people feel loved and cared for. It's very quick, it's very painless, but the reward you get from it. I promise you, it's so surprising. I didn't realize that I could feel fulfilled in a way that's new," McDade and Hazen said.
If you would like to help McDade and Hazen spread the warmth, you are more than welcome to reach out to McDade via Facebook. But the women said you can start spreading the warmth in your community by tying a scarf, blanket, or jacket to a tree in your neighborhood.
