TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - The Golden Circle Civic Social Club hosted the Share the Warmth event at Park Hill on Saturday.

The event hoped to aid over 100 homeless people by giving out food and backpacks filled with winter essentials.

“It’s important because we never know where we are going to be in life," Co-Chair of Golden Circle Civic Social Club Tawana Dearing said. "If you’re blessed, then you need to learn how to bless others."

The organization services the community every year. The president of the organization saw a need for aiding the homeless community and came up with this idea to serve them.

The bags were packed with warm clothes, socks, gloves, personal hygiene supplies and bus passes.
