The Guess Foundation and Make will together host the third "Scarf in the Park Project" at 2 p.m. Dec. 24, Christmas Eve, for members of the community to hang scarves in the trees at Dolly McNutt Plaza (across from City Hall) for Paducah's homeless and for families in need.

In addition to the scarves, hats, gloves and socks also are being collected and will be available until all the items are taken. The event will be simple, with hot cocoa and the hanging of the items on the trees throughout the plaza.

Many of Paducah's homeless spend time at the McCracken County Public Library, and this is the reason Dolly McNutt Plaza was selected as the site for the project.

Scarves, hats, gloves and socks may be dropped of at any of the following collection points: Bob's Drive-in, Cindy's Flowers, Compass Counseling, Global Wine & Spirits, House to Home Creations, Make, McCracken County Public Library, River Discovery Center, and Simply B.

Personalized messages also can be pinned onto each item. If anyone would like to write notes, donate an item or host a collection box, contact Susan Guess at or 270-210-2434.
