Marquette, MI – October 2, 2020 – Project Keep Kids Warm is going into the eleventh year of providing winter clothing to needy families in western Marquette County, and Project Coordinator Dick Derby about this year’s effort.
Derby explained that the program serves families in the Ishpeming, Negaunee, and Republic area. He added that there continues to be a huge need for winter clothing for our youth, and even more so with the added challenges of the coronavirus pandemic.
Derby said 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 is also a drop-off at the partnering church, Immanuel Lutheran, located at 521 Highway U.S. 41 in Negaunee.
