LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — For four years, one girl has been on a mission to help those in need during the winter. She collects scarves and wraps them around Greater Lafayette for anyone to take.

11-year-old Faith Bryant is the young lady behind this project. This year, for the first time, she is partnering with the Lafayette Transitional Housing Center. LTHC helps individuals and families experiencing homelessness learn skills to maintain housing.

So this year, Bryant is not just asking for just donated scarves. She would also like people to donate backpacks that she will be giving to LTHC on Dec. 15. She is filling the bags with supplies including hats, gloves and socks, but she's short soap and deodorant.

Bryant said she is also in need of more backpacks. As of now, she has not reached her goal of having 50 adult backpacks.

"If I don't reach my goal, I'll feel kinda bad because I told the lady at the homeless shelter that I would get them 50 bookbags and I will, which I hope," said Bryant.

You have until Friday, Dec. 14 to donate items. Supplies are being collected at the Dunkin' Donuts by the Tippecanoe Mall. You can also contact Bryant by her facebook page, Scarves Downtown - Lafayette to drop off items another way.

She is also in need of volunteers to help her wrap the scarves up around Greater Lafayette. If you would like to help the plan is to meet up at Tapawingo Park Saturday Dec. 15th at 1 p.m.
