Scarves To Warm The Body And Soul

A small portion of Downtown Salina looked a little like Christmas Wednesday evening. Bright colored winter scarves were wrapped around trees, poles, and meters in an alley between Santa Fe and 7th Street.
The scarves were not decorations. They were gifts for those who might be trying to fight off the cold.
Each scarf had a small note attached to it, saying it was free for the taking. The scarves were left in area where the homeless often travel, and would be a welcome bit of warmth from the cold.
The note indicated that the scarves were left by an organization called Salina Shares.
According their website, Salina Shares is an organization dedicated to doing random acts of kindness in the community. The organization’s description reads:
“Generosity of spirit and acts of kindness are at the heart of Salina Shares. We are comprised of clusters of friends throughout our town in which community is unfolding as a way of life.
What began as group outings for random acts of kindness, continues to grow into activities and outings with the intention of being a ‘sudden good break’ to those we meet along the way. We delight in releasing hope, impacting lives and affirming dignity.
The mission of Salina Shares is to share our time, our lives and our resources with our community. We invite individuals, businesses, churches and schools to participate in enriching our community by sharing what we can with one another.”
