Coats and warm item donations for Addy's Warm Heart Coat Drive

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV) An eight-year-old girl is helping make her community better by organizing a winter coat drive for the homeless.

Addisyn got the idea when she saw homeless people on the street while on the way to visit her grandfather in the hospital. She wanted to find a way to help them, so she asked her mother if they could collect items to keep them warm. They started Addy’s Warm Heart Donation Drive, and the donations are pouring in. Addison and her family will gather the donations and personally had them out at Mel Trotter Ministries.

If you would like to help, drop off new or gently used blankets, coats, mittens, scarves, hats, and gloves at any Design One Salon and Spa location, Hart Enterprises, or CU Answers.
