Coat Racks for the Homeless

Coat Racks for the Homeless

Emilia Flores, a restaurant owner in Dallas, Texas, set up a “Take one, leave one” coat rack for the homeless. The rack, located outside her place of business, makes available free coats, hats, and scarves during frigid weather. “This is a way of people not being embarrassed about asking,” Flores explained. “They just come and pick what they need and leave.” Flores’ thoughtful idea has now inspired other business owners to set up similar outside coat racks!
