SHARP COUNTY, Ark. (KAIT) - While Northeast Arkansas is enjoying warm temperatures now, cold weather is just a few weeks away.

Comfort Keepers Ministry wants to make sure everyone stays warm when the thermometer drops.

The Sharp County non-profit has been giving out space heaters over the past few years to individuals who do not have a heating source or the means to purchase one.

Lauren Siebert, president of the non-profit charity, said she’s already handed out a fair amount this year.

“The first cold snap, I gave out like 20 heaters,” she said.

Siebert said she’s helping people stay warm because she knows what it’s like to be without.

“I know what it’s like to be cold, sleep on the ground, and go without,” she said. “God has blessed me, and I’m no longer in that position. If I can do anything about it, no one else will be either.”

If you need a heater and are in the Sharp County area, or would like to help the ministry, call 870-373-1233.
