Button Up The U.P.

A companion piece on the issue of poverty is being done all this week in the Mining Journal.

Reporter Renee Prusi looks at getting through hard times.

Another issue many U.P. families are dealing with this year is having adequate outdoor wear for the winter weather.

ABC 10 and a group of partners are conducting what we’re calling ‘Button Up the U.P’.

It’s a coat drive that Radio Results Network and the Mining Journal are helping us promote.

Coats are being collected at Marquette Mountain.

You can drop off new or gently used coats at the collection box at near Marquette Mountain.

You’ll get a thank-you in the form of $10 off the cost of a lift ticket.

The ‘Button Up’ campaign continues through December 23rd, when the St. Vincent de Paul Society will distribute the coats to needy families.
