As winter approaches, the Tyler Solid Waste Department is teaming up with St. Paul Children’s Foundation to ask the public to spread the warmth by donating new blankets.

At this time, the Foundation does not have any blankets and is in dire need of donations to distribute to the elderly and anyone else in need.

New blankets may be dropped off at the Solid Waste Recycle Center located at 418 N. Bois D’Arc Ave. during regular business hours: Monday through Friday from 7:15 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. and Saturdays from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m.

For more information about this event, please call Solid Waste at 903-531-1388.
