MURFREESBORO, TN (WSMV) -

The cold days of winter are quickly approaching.

In Rutherford County, three businesses are teaming up to help the homeless. On chilly days and nights, having warmth and shelter can make a big difference.

The three businesses partnering are WGNS Radio, Mills Real Estate Partners and Liquidation Outlet.

Their goal is to collect at least 500 sleeping bags and/or tents to be handed out to the homeless in Murfreesboro and across Middle Tennessee.

Last year, 310 sleeping bags were collected and distributed. Organizers believe the public can help nearly double that.

Donations are being taken throughout the cold weather months.

Drop off locations include:

  • WGNS - 306 S. Church Street, Murfreesboro, TN 37130
  • MILLS Real Estate Partners - 405 St. Andrews Dr., Murfreesboro, TN 37128
  • Liquidation Outlet - 203 Southpointe Ct., Ste. A1 Murfreesboro, TN 37130
