As winter sets in, the directors of Santa Fe’s two homeless shelters say their biggest need for the people they serve are cold-weather clothes, especially shoes and socks.

“We’ve had a lot of people coming to the door who have wet shoes [and] wet socks,” said St. Elizabeth Shelter Executive Director Deborah Tang. “The shoes and the socks are the biggest need right now. Because of the wet weather, keeping their feet warm is an important part of health for them.”

    “We have we seen an increase [in need] due to cuts to food stamps, also because of the cold,” Hooper said.

    Someone should ask this question, when the democrats passed the TEMPORARY increase in the SNAP benefit, why didn't they make the increase PERMANENT?

    Is this a built in mechanism that the democrats use to try to place blame on Republicans?
