Could you face a Michigan winter without a warm coat? In the metro Detroit area, including the Grosse Pointes and Harper Woods, thousands of needy children do not have adequate clothing and are at risk when the temperatures drop. However, thanks to Operation Warm each of these children can be warm and toasty as they brave the cold this winter. Children with coats will stand at the school bus stop and thus get to school!
Operation Warm is a local effort with national roots. The metro area project began in 2012 when the Grosse Pointe Rotary, Grosse Pointe Sunrise Rotary, Detroit Rotary and Detroit A.M. Rotary combined resources to promote the program and raise funds. Coats are purchased from the national clearinghouse at a cost of approximately $20 per coat. In 2012 and 2013, 6,698 coats were purchased and distributed to agencies and schools in the metro area. These include Crossroads of Michigan, the National School Lunch Program in Grosse Pointe and Harper Woods, For the Seventh Generation, the Children’s Center of Detroit, Northeast Guidance Center, and Matrix Human Services.
Mary Honsel, Crossroads’ Executive Director, says, “We are very grateful for the coats we receive from Rotary and Operation Warm. Detroit’s winters can be cruel to the poor and extreme poverty hits children especially hard. This program meets a basic need for the clients we serve. The smiles on the faces of the boys and girls when they receive these brand new coats can light up a room.”
The goal of Operation Warm 2014 is to raise funds that will provide the resources to purchase and distribute 4,000 coats before December 1. I hope members of Grosse Pointe Congregational will continue their generosity, shown in the past two years. A donation of only $20 will buy a coat for a child and have a huge impact on that child’s well being. Please use the blue or yellow envelope and mark it for Operation Warm. Thank you.
We are excited about our Among Friends events for the upcoming season. These activities are open to all adults at Grosse Pointe Congregational Church. Please bring your friends and join us for fellowship and fun.
