-Linda Perry, Founder of Warm to the Touch, a non-profit organization that has been serving communities, churches, neighborhoods, schools and more by providing the basic necessities for everyday life. It’s a small organization with a “BIG” heart and vision. The foundation was built with the goal of providing 15 blankets to the homeless community, but grew into something more. Warm to the Touch also provides school supplies, socks, undergarments, seasonal apparel, toiletry and hygiene products. Many of the basic necessities have been distributed to throughout Pulaski County, Conway and surrounding areas. The mission is to give back to the community to ensure the homeless are warm; babies, youth, ladies & gentlemen have necessities for everyday life. Their impressum is “We will start of small, but God will make us Great.” The Salvation Army of Central Arkansas has partnered with Warm to the Touch to serve at a drop-off location for those interested in donating any items to help benefit those in need and to help spread love. The address is 1111 West Markham Street in Little Rock. For more information, call 501-413-5993 or or email WarmtotheTouch @yahoo.com or follow ‘Warm 2 the Touch’ on Facebook.
