With this weekend’s forecast for snow and dropping temperatures, Justin Conway and Philip Shook knew they had to something to help.

They began buying items, gloves, blankets, hoodies, socks, crackers, water, and many other items to take to homeless people.

The two, with their wives, got out to do what they could.

In below freezing temperatures, they went to the camps of homeless people, offering what most take for granted. They gave out a warm blanket and a little food and water.

When stores found out why they were buying the items, they began donating things as well.

So, with no Facebook page, or GoFundMe, or cash app, these two have been able to make a difference and maybe save a life from this brutal cold. They simply encourage others to do whatever they can do.

"It doesn't take much, a case of water. These people are happy with some water or an extra sweatshirt, a blanket that you have laying around the house," Conway said.

Neither Conway nor Shook wanted the attention for their acts of kindness, however, acts of kindness like this can’t help but get out.
