COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) – Children at St. Paul United Methodist Church’s preschool program collected scarves and have hung them on a Lakebottom Park bridge for those in need.

Since they couldn't do it on their own the children got their parents involved. They hung them on the pedestrian bridge at Lakebottom Park close to the playground area.

The scarves are for anyone whether it be someone walking through the park or someone in need. All a person has to do is walk up and simply take one.

"The main thing we want to do is also offer the opportunity for all of Columbus, whether it’s a preschool, or whether it’s a business or an individual, for them to go do the same thing. They can add to our bridge, or they can create their own little area that they can offer," said Nan Konze, Director of St. Paul United Methodist Church Preschool.

Konze says the kids are so excited knowing they will be able to warm someone from the goodness of their hearts.
