Raleigh Helping Hand Mission still in need of heaters

Posted: Updated:
RALEIGH, N.C. -

The Helping Hand Mission of Raleigh wants to keep families warm during the recent cold snap that has crossed the country.

The mission has already received more than 200 heaters after sending out call for help.

More than three people donated because they saw the call for help on WNCN.

But the need for more heaters hasn't stopped with recent donations.

"We get three in and three go," said Sylvia Wiggins of the Helping Hand Mission. "The need is major."

Wiggins said the phone has been ringing off the hook with people in need of heat.

"It is too cold for them to sleep at night," Tina Frederick said of her children.

That is where the public comes in.

Heaters can be bought for as little as $9 at a hardware store, but for a family in need, the heat is priceless.

"You know what? It makes me sleep good to know that someone else sleeps good, especially the kids," Wiggins said.

Donations can be made at the Helping Hand Mission at 623 Rock Quarry Road in Raleigh.
