Richland’s Little Fence of Hope Has Winter-Wear for Children in Need
The Little Fence of Hope in Richland has been re-stocked for kids in need this winter.
The Little Fence of Hope was created in 2018 at 1507 Lee Boulevard in Richland.
We live 2 blocks from an elementary school, 2 blocks from a middle school, and 3 blocks from a high school. Tons of kids walk past our house every weekday, and many of them seemed underdressed for the winter. My family and I thought it would be nice to hang hats and gloves on the fence. It would keep them a little warmer and let them know someone cared.
Mary Baylor Arquette is one woman strong with your help.
Mary collects new and gently used beanies, gloves, scarves, mittens, jackets, and snow pants all year long. When the weather turns colder, she hangs the items on the fence for people to take. So far this year, 200 jackets have been handed out.

Please remember that everything available is first come, first served. Sometimes, it's more than winter clothing.
