"During the winter season and tough economic times, We collect warm items such as coats and blankets to help keep the homeless , and less fortunate warm during the cold winter months. Many of the people we serve are shelterless, living in Detroit , and the surrounding metro Detroit area. We also collect for people living in shelters and orphanages. Donations are welcome at any time, however our biggest collection time starts around the end of October each year and ends the week before Christmas. This year, we’re keeping most drop spots open through Christmas.
