Statue Giving The Homeless The Gift Of Warmth

A statue has become a haven of warmth for the homeless population in a South Carolina town.

Generous residents are leaving coats, gloves, scarves and hats on a life-sized statue of William Whitner, who brought electricity to the city.

Carey Jones, the president of a nonprofit that helps preserve and revitalize the city’s historic district, started the trend by placing a jacket on the statue and asking others to help on social media.

“People that are homeless, the thing is, everything they have, they have on their back," said Jones.
