Project Keep Kids Warm

A group of Marquette County community and church members are hoping to provide warm coats for needy kids this weekend.

Project Keep Kids Warm started three years ago.

It’s a simple and effective program in which Negaunee and Ishpeming residents can give away new and used winter coats to those who may not have one.

Pastor Scott Lindenberg of Wesley United Methodist Church in Ishpeming says volunteers will be in Negaunee and Ishpeming on Saturday to distribute donation bags.

Another round of volunteers will pick up the bags on Saturday, October 20th.

You can also participate by dropping off winter coats – or putting in a request for one – at the Saint Vincent de Paul Society in Negaunee or at the Salvation Army in Ishpeming.

You can donate any sort of winter clothing — coats, scarves, gloves and snow pants in sizes from infants to age 18.
