GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM)- The fifth annual "Warm Hands Warm Hearts" drive is underway to collect winter clothing items for the families living at the YWCA West Central Michigan's domestic violence emergency shelter. Rebecca Diffin, Director of Supportive Housing stopped by the Weekend Morning News to share more details.
Through Thursday, December 20th, donations of new or gently used hats, mittens, gloves, and scarves can be dropped off at Fogle Orthodontics' new location at 933 Three Mile Rd. NW, Suite 102, Grand Rapids, Michigan 49544. The office is open Monday through Thursday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. (Closed for lunch from 1-2 p.m.) Both women's and children's items are needed.
At the end of the collection drive, Dr. Fogle and her staff will deliver the items to the YWCA for distribution to domestic violence victims and their children. Each year, the YWCA provides confidential emergency shelter to more than 500 women and children who are fleeing situations of domestic violence.
