Marquette, MI – October 14, 2021 – Project: Keep Kids Warm is back for Fall 2021 for the twelfth year of providing winter clothing to needy families in the Ishpeming, Negaunee, and Republic communities.
Derby explained that this year, the effort is focusing on area schools to help identify families who can use some help with warm winter clothing items. That includes Ishpeming, NICE, Negaunee, Republic/Michigamme, Hartman High at St. John’s, and Ishpeming Head Start.
He said that the effort is gathering new items, not used, and there are two ways to help:
Send a financial contribution with donations made out to Wesley United Methodist Church. 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, you can purchase new winter clothing for ages infant to 18 and drop them in the marked totes at their distribution headquarters, Wesley United Methodist Church in Ishpeming.
