LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) – Imagine being out in the cold all day long with no place to go. That's the reality for some in central Arkansas.

But there's a way you can help.

The North Little Rock Fire Department Explorer Post is looking for help with keeping those who need it warm by collecting blankets to keep on hand to give out in various situations, including homelessness.

If you would like to donate a blanket (at least twin size), you can drop it off at Fire Station 9 at 2309 Osage in North Little Rock any time during the day.
