Emilia Flores owns The Taco Shop in Dallas, Texas. Out front, she's set up a free coat, hat and scarf exchange. The sign says, "Are you cold? Take one. Do you want to help? Leave one." During one recent year, the entire rack was stolen four times, but Flores keeps replacing it.
Freezing temperatures in Texas inspired this good samaritan to offer winter clothing free to those who need it. The rack is easy to spot, and its message is clear. Even if someone isn't homeless, Flores wants them to be prepared for a cold winter. She says "This is a way of people not being embarrassed about asking. They just come and pick what they want and leave."
