According to neighbor Susan Schroering, "Anonymous kindness is alive and well in Austin Garden as evidenced by the packages of hand-knitted scarfs, hats and mittens that mysteriously appeared on each of the eight park benches one morning this past week. A heart-shaped handwritten note found in each ziplocked bag tells the finder to keep the contents if needed for a warmer winter. By the end of day, all but one package had been claimed." 

Schroering says she lives next to Austin Gardens and walks her dog there several times each day. "The kindness perpetrators," she noted, "have yet to be identified."
