8th Annual Hug Detroit Coat & Blanket Drive Benefit Concert at the Tangent Gallery.

Detroit Michigan - Hug Detroit Day, Unlimited Sky Production , Leep & State Rep Isaac Robinson Proudly Presents the 8th Annual Coat & Blanket Drive. December 8, 2019 at the Tangent Gallery. Hosted by Cree Alex .4p-10p. This will be a day of giving and  celebrating the true meaning of the holidays. Hug Detroit Day Coat & Blanket Drive was created for the Metro Detroit homeless and the less fortunate .

During the winter season and tough economic times, we collect warm items such as coats, socks, blankets etc, to do our part in helping keep the homeless, and less fortunate warm during the fall and winter months.  Many of the people we serve are shelter-less, living in Detroit, and the surrounding metro Detroit area.  We also collect for people living in shelters and orphanages.  Donations are welcome at any time, however, our biggest collection times start around the end of October each year and ends the week before Christmas. This year, we’re keeping most drop spots open through the holy days.

Hardship knows no boundaries. We all share this city that we call home, so we also should share in the responsibility of helping our neighbors in need in person or anonymously.Every single item we receive is a huge help toward our mission.  If every person, that heard of Hug Detroit Day, donated at least one item, we would exceed our goal every year.  Please help in one of these ways?

Please Bring Your NEW or Gently Used Coats, Hats, Scarves, Gloves, Socks, Blankets and Sleeping Bags etc, to our Hug Detroit Day Coat & Blanket Drive at the Tangent Gallery, December 8th .

Hold your own Coat & Blanket Drive in your workplace, and come celebrate with other givers December 8th at the Tangent Gallery dropping off your load of coats & blankets .
