Giving fence brings holiday cheer to community

COLERAIN TOWNSHIP, Ohio — A woman in Colerain Township started a giving fence to bring some holiday cheer to those in need.

Debbie Hoerst started the Giving Fence of Warmth, and she said the Colerain Township community coming together to celebrate Christmas for Brody Allen back in 2018 inspired her to do so.

Hoerst asks the community for scarves, hats, gloves, and anything that can be put in a bag and hung on the fence. Once the items are hung on the fence, anyone can come by and grab what they need free of charge.

The fence is so popular that Hoerst said she has to restock the fence every morning. Hoerst said 2020 has been bad, but she wants to remind people that we can still make what seems like a bad day into a good one.

If you would like to donate to the fence, Hoerst is accepting donations during business hours Monday through Friday and from 9:30 a.m. to noon on Saturdays at Compton Recycling on Compton Road. The fence is located outside of Compton Recycling as well.
