Time to Chase the Chill

in A&E/Featured/Headline

The current weather feels far from winter, and yet it remains true that it has come time to Chase the Chill.

At Monday’s Redwood City council meeting, organizer Jodi Paley announced the fourth annual Chase the Chill event is coming up.

The event has community members of all ages contributing handmade items such as scarves, hats, socks, and gloves. The items are collected throughout the month of October. In November, they are hung up at various city locations, and each is tagged with a message that reads “take me if you need me or like me.”

Hundreds of items are contributed by the community to the effort.

Starting Oct. 1, collection bins will be placed at the Community Activities Building, Veterans Memorial Senior Center, Fair Oaks Senior Center, City Hall, Main Library and Redwood Shores Library.

Then on Wednesday, Nov. 13, community members will meet at the Community Activities Building to help sort and tag the handmade items before they are hung up around the city.

“I see people as young as 6 doing this up to their 90s,” Paley said. “This is a community wide event.
