Wake County, N.C. — Winter is still more than a month away, but we all know temperatures can get brutally cold overnight.
That's where Warmth for Wake, a local program with a goal to help everyone stay warm, comes in.
Warmth for Wake provides firewood and space heaters for low income residents in Wake County.
Organizers said, when it comes to heating homes in the bitterness of winter, warmth becomes more about safety than about comfort.
