Our members in Design-Layout at the 955 36th St. location in Grand Rapids need help collecting blankets for the homeless. Even so early this season, winter is shaping up to be another brutal roller coaster ride for all of us, but much more so for the less fortunate. Every year, there are tragic stories of homeless folks suffering cold-injuries and even death from exposure. While there are a few shelters in Grand Rapids, they fill up fast and those who can’t get in are forced to spend the night on the street in sub-freezing temperatures. We would appreciate any and all donations of gently-used blankets.
Blankets may be given to the lead steward of Design-Layout, Celeste Davis at 955 36th St. SE in Grand Rapids or dropped off at the Union Hall at 3281 Kentland Ct. SE in Wyoming (map). Please have your donations in by December 19th. Thanks to all. Community!
