ST. JOSEPH COUNTY, Ind. -- Many of us are grateful for the oncoming warmer weather, but for the homeless, it means the end of weather amnesty.
On Saturday, Michiana Five for the Homeless held a backpack drive.
Starting April 1, those who are homeless can no longer leave their belongings at a shelter.
So, community members donated bags which go straight to the homeless right here in Michiana.
Volunteers say a bag may seem insignificant to some - but to a homeless person, it means so much more.
Michiana Five for the Homeless hosts drives throughout the year.
