More than 50 people braved the ice and freezing temperatures Feb. 13 to participate in the 13th annual Alexandrians Have Heart clothing and food drive sponsored by former City Councilman Frank Fannon.

“Despite the ice storm and 29-degree temperature, people came out to support our local charities,” said Fannon, who collected donations at a parking lot on S. Henry Street. “Along with car loads full of food and clothing, we also collected $2,600 in cash donations.

Donations will support the Alive! food bank, Christ House, Latina’s USA and Carpenter’s Shelter.
