Random acts of kindness visible all over Tri-State


On benches, tied to poles, even under overpasses -- random acts of kindness are visible all over the Tri-State. 
Don't be alarmed this weekend if you see baggies filled with cold weather accessories all over the city.
Liz Wu is the mastermind behind the clothes drive which was organized in her Facebook group, known as Random Acts of Kindness or ROAK. 

"The long and short of it is there are just a lot of people who are just looking for ways to get involved in their community and to share kindness,"
said Wu. "This is just one way we found to do it."

This is the second year for Wu's drive. On Saturday and Sunday hundreds of volunteers will take over 50 Tri-State neighborhoods.

Last January, they collected and dispersed more than 2,000 items.

If donation boxes like the one at Roh Street Cafe in Clifton are any indication, this year's drive will find even more people in need.

Wu said this is the final push to collect as many new and gently used mittens, gloves, scarves, hats and socks as possible.
