Local organization collecting of Giving Tuesday

ISHPEMING– One local organization is hoping to do its part on giving Tuesday to help out those in need, even if it’s just with the small things.

The Great Lakes Recovery Center in Ishpeming is collecting clothing, hygiene and child care products for women in their recovery center. Diapers, toys, clothing, shampoo, toothpaste and monetary donations are all welcome.

Officials from the center say these little items go a long way in helping the woman feel clean and well put together which then helps their recovery.

Shelby Bischoff, Fund Development Officer said, “I think it’s a huge part of recovery and when you feel good about yourselves and we’re presentable we feel better about ourselves in general.”

Bischoff said the response “Has been really great, I’ve gotten several calls and obviously some of the donations are coming in and we’re getting some monetary donations through our website.”

It’s not too late to donate yourself; Bischoff says that they will be accepting donations for this event until midnight.
To donate, contact the Great Lakes Recovery Center here or contact them by phone at (906)-228-9696.
