A local organization that’s been serving the less fortunate in our community since 1973 is asking for help keeping their clients warm. People of Progress is on Center Street in Downtown Redding behind the Napa Auto Parts. They raise money with their thrift store and from private donations and they provide referrals, bus passes, meals and items of clothing to those in need. The store is open Monday through Saturday from 10AM to 5PM. People of Progress says they’re very low on some items that are very much in demand with the cold snap. They need warm hats, gloves, socks and scarves. If anyone has extras lying around, they would be much appreciated at People of Progress. They can be reached at 243-3811 or peopleofprogress.org.
