CHI Health / Salvation Army Layers of Love

Winter Outerwear Drive

December 2 – 6, 2019

The temps are dropping – this winter weather is especially tough for a homeless person on the street.         

CHI Health is teaming up with the Salvation Army for the Layers of Love effort. The Salvation Army’s Winter Night Watch program – which takes warm clothing and hot meals directly to those in need on the streets of Omaha – is in need of new winter outerwear items.

Items Most Needed Include:

  • Coats (especially XL, 2XL, 3XL) and sweaters
  • Socks
  • Gloves
  • Winter hats and scarves 

CHI Health Clinic Collection Sites:

Layers of Love Winter Outerwear Drive

CHI Health and Salvation Army are partnering to collect hats, gloves, socks (all sizes) and winter layering wear.  These items will be used to benefit the homeless and near homeless in the Omaha Metro Area through the Salvation Army Night Watch Program which kicks off at the end of November and runs until the beginning of March.  Volunteers go out each night in North, South and Central Omaha to provide hot meals and warm winter wear to those in need.  CHI Health Family Clinics located throughout the Omaha Metro and Council Bluffs, IA will serve as collection points for donations. 

Clinics hours may vary from Monday to Sunday.
