Coinciding with Mayor Mike Rawlings annual Homeless Week, Keep Dallas warm is a community-based initiative aimed at providing gently worn coats and clothing to every homeless and underprivileged person in the city of Dallas.

The idea began two years ago when Dallasite Jim Silcock came up with a plan to donate $10,000 worth of coats to Dallas’ homeless men, women and children. By reaching out to shelter and homeless advocates at Community Crossroads, The Stewpot and The Bridge, silcock calculated  that a mere 1,800 coats would help every homeless person in Dallas to have a warmer winter. An estimated 3,600 coats and clothing items would meet the needs of the underprivileged and impoverished. Silcock has worked closely with Wes Goyer, owner of St. Bernard Sports, who generously donated outerwear items for the effort.
