Marquette, MI – October 29, 2020 – Project Keep Kids Warm is rolling along with providing winter clothing to needy families in western Marquette County. Project Coordinator Dick Derby joined Mark & Walt in the Morning to share an update about this year’s effort.
Derby said response to the program, which serves families in the Ishpeming, Negaunee, and Republic area, has been very strong so far this season.
He reminded everyone that this year’s clothing drive is going to be different than years past, but there still are ways for people to get involved.
Here are two ways you can help:
Send a financial contribution. Make donations out to Wesley United Methodist Church and mail them to P.O. Box 342 Ishpeming, MI 49849. One hundred percent of the funds will be used to purchase new winter items.
Or, people can purchase new winter clothing for ages infant to 18 and drop them in the marked totes at the distribution headquarters, Wesley United Methodist Church, located at 801 Hemlock Street in Ishpeming.
There’s also a drop-off at the partnering church, Immanuel Lutheran, located at 521 Highway U.S. 41 in Negaunee.
