Group gives 60 blankets to homeless on rainy night

AUSTIN (KXAN) — A group of Austinites handed out 60 blankets on a cold and rainy Friday night to homeless men and women around downtown.

Austin police snapped a photo of the group: Officer Cameron Caldwell, former Longhorn football player Jeremy Hills, Bryan Hynson and Heather Aholt.

Hynson came up with the idea to handout blankets and former Texas player Brian Orakpo, who was not able to make it out, matched their donation.

Two weeks ago, we followed a woman passing out 250 sack lunches to people in need of a good meal downtown.
