Corpus Christi Parish in Winslow launched a two-week initiative Feb. 5 that aims to offer warmth and clothing to area homeless and local students in need.

Clotheslines of Comfort is scheduled to run through Thursday, Feb. 19, with actual clotheslines hanging in Notre Dame du Perpetual Secours Church at 116 Silver St. in Waterville, and St. John the Baptist Church and hall at 26 Monument St. in Winslow.

Those who can assist are asked to bring hats, mittens, scarves, socks and T-shirts, in adult and children’s sizes, to any of the locations and hang them on the clotheslines.

All donations will be distributed to area schools as well as the Mid-Maine Homeless Shelter and Services.

Located on Colby Street in Waterville, the shelter provides beds, meals, and an action plan for those in need that helps guests obtain housing, financial stability, education, family guidance, transportation, legal assistance, mental health counseling, substance abuse counseling, and more.
