Use Campaign Signs to Make Blankets for Homeless
Election Day has come and gone, but if you still have signs in your yard (or in your basement now), don't throw them away! A special event in Cincinnati Wednesday has been organized to collect these signs so that they may be turned into weather proof blankets for the homeless. Check out what Japp's in Cincinnati, which is hosting the event has to say:
Don't throw away that campaign sign!
Grab it out of the yard and bring it with you THIS Wednesday, November 14th to Japp's anytime from 4-9p. You'll get $5 hot totties and $2 Yuengling and tasty treats from Mayberry….
AND you will be helping the homeless of our city stay dry in the winter months with water-resistant blanket covers made from the repurposed campaign signs that will be donated to City Gospel Mission.Bringing the Dems and Repubs together...two formidable forces...to create one Beautiful Force...to reduce waste in our landfills...and to help keep those in need dry and warm this winter.
We are Re:Signed to Help....Hope you will be too....Join us Wednesday to kick off this county-wide effort to work across the aisle...let the change start here.

"(It's a) nice way to bring both the political parties together to do something for the community," organizer Britt Born said.
The group hopes to hand out the blankets at the Fall Feast event at the Duke Energy Convention Center at the end of November.
"(There is) really an unknown number of people sleeping outside," said Josh Spring of the Greater Cincinnati Homeless Coalition.
WHEN: Wednesday, November 14 from 4:00-9:00PM at Japp's (1134 Main Street, Cincinnati). Drink discounts, too!
