Marquette, MI – September 16, 2022 – Project Keep Kids Warm, an effort that has resulted in over 300 Marquette County kids receiving the winter jackets, snow pants, boots, and other winter gear over the past 13 years, is back for another winter season.
Derby said the effort, once again this year, is seeking financial contributions to help fund the purchase of items for the families in need.
Prior to the pandemic, the effort would gather items to be distributed, but now, the financial support allows the group to secure winter clothing in large quantities and at discounted prices from area retailers.
He explained that area schools and service organizations submit requests on behalf of the kids and orders are then filled.
Derby said financial donations can be made out to Wesley United Methodist Church (Indicate KKW on your check) and mailed to:
Wesley United Methodist Church
P.O. Box 342
