A woman in Gallatin found a unique way to help the homeless deal with the cold outside.

Connie Alexander ran a winter clothes donation drive over the last two months, and Saturday, she bagged up all the donations and proceeded to tie more than 100 of the coats, scarves, mittens and socks to trees along 1st Avenue in downtown Nashville.

Each one had a note saying the clothes were there for those who needed to stay warm during this cold snap.

Alexander said she knows her random act of kindness won't solve homelessness, and it won’t stop the cold from coming, but she hopes it will warm a few hearts.

“They may not be as cold tonight, that’s the way I look at it,” Alexander said.

Alexander added her father, who would help out neighbors in need when she was a child, inspired her to run her own clothing drive.
