MARQUETTE, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – An annual tradition helping out families and kids in need in Marquette County is back again.
“Project Keep Kids Warm” is back to get coats, hats and gloves on kids who need them as winter approaches.
Organizer Dick Derby joined The SUNNY Morning Show with Walt & Mike to explain the process of how all of the clothing is collected and to encourage folks to take part.
Derby said that bags are being distributed to homes from Ishpeming and Negaunee and out to Republic and Champion on Saturday from 10:00 am to noon.
The bags are to be filled by folks with new and gently used coats, jackets, hats and gloves.
Those bags will then be picked up and the items will be taken to the Ishpeming Armory where they will be sorted and then distributed to kids and families in need.
