Mystery Hour TV show campaigns to give hand-warmers to homeless people

On Friday, “The Mystery Hour,” a late-night TV talk show based in Springfield, announced it would campaign to raise money to buy 25,000 packets of Hot Hands hand-warmers to help people living with homelessness survive cold winter temperatures.

They call it “The Great Ozarks Warm-A-Thon.”

Jeff Houghton, show host, told the News-Leader he was moved after the Springfield Street Choir performed on the show last year.

“After learning from homeless folks that Hot Hands can really make a life or death difference, holding a fundraiser seemed like such a simple thing to do that will help a lot,” Houghton said. “For me, 2020 has really raised my empathy toward people living in uncertainty, and toward people struggling. The folks that are homeless are important people in our community that are struggling and we get to help.”
