As the chill in the air becomes more pronounced, so does our longing for a fireplace. “More people are renovating their homes, and one upgrade they want to include seems to be a fireplace,” says David Waldman, owner of Dreifuss Fireplaces, with locations in Paoli and Philadelphia. “They definitely add value to a home.”

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — There’s a project underway in a local arts community to create 300 “gifts of warmth” for the homeless before Thanksgiving, and the center of the action is on S 20th Street between Chestnut and Sansom Streets.

Just off of Rittenhouse Square sits Square Peg Artery and Salvage. Manager Jennifer Harrison says that last year, she and her neighbors noticed a high number of homeless people wearing clothes inappropriate for cold weather. So they put their knitting needles together and started creating hats, scarves and other items for the homeless. Now, they’re at it again.
