Good Samaritan Buys Jackets for the Cold and Homeless

In downtown Portland, a Good Samaritan taped several jackets with notes to light poles. The note read "I am not lost! Please take me if you need me."

In addition, two of the jackets were found near the intersection of High Street and Congress Street. In fact, Gabby Kaper came up with the idea and asked people on Facebook to follow suit.

She purchased the jackets for $1.00 each at Goodwill and put them up around downtown Portland. When she got into her car, she had already noticed a person who wasn't wearing many layers take a jacket.

She wrote, "People are homeless, people are cold. $5 to make five people less freezing, $5 to make someone sleep a little better tonight, $5 may be very little to me but very important to another. I encourage everyone to give this a try this season."
