Full Circle Supply on Main Street in La Crosse has a new addition outside.
For the past nine weeks, owners Josh and Mary Larson have placed racks of warm clothing outside of their store. The sign on the racks has one simple message to those passing by: "Cold? Take One. Want to Help? Leave One."
Josh Larson said he could not have imagined the support the donation has received from community members.
"It's been pretty cool watching people bring stuff and take stuff. A lot of the people really just seem to pop in really quick with their own hangers not looking for any thanks or anything in return," Larson said. "Just wanting to help out. Everyone deserves to be warm."
Donations of hats, coats, mittens, socks, and other winter gear of all sizes can be dropped off at Full Circle Supply on 531 Main Street.
The warm clothing donated is available to everyone every day during regular business hours. Larson hopes to keep the racks out until the weather warms up.
