Community brief

CSA gears up homeless for the winter

The Community Services Agency of Mountain View and Los Altos (CSA) is handing out supplies to help homeless residents stay clean and dry during the cold winter months.

The weather throughout December and into January includes both wet weather and cold snaps that have been brutal for people living outside, according to Tom Myers, the executive director of CSA. As it has in previous winters, Myers said CSA will be handing out a package of supplies similar to a medical kit, including clean underwear, shampoo, blankets and tarps. The goal is to keep the homeless both warm and safe through the worst of the inclement weather, Myers said.

The CSA headquarters, located at 204 Stierlin Road, will be closed from Friday, Dec. 30, through Monday, Jan. 2 for New Years Eve and New Years Day.
