Team Wellness Center Kicks Off 5th Annual “Team Cares Coat Drive”

Detroit, MI (November 1, 2022) – Team Wellness Center in conjunction with Team Cares Inc. has kicked off their coat drive for 2022. The “Team Cares Coat Drive” will run through December 19th.

Throughout the winter, coats will be distributed at no cost to adults and children with mental illness and behavioral health conditions. Many of whom are homeless or lack the resources to purchase coats to keep them warm during the winter.

“Many of the people that come to us for services during the winter show up without a coat,” said Michael Hunter, President of Team Wellness Center. “We want to make sure that every member has a new or gently used coat to keep them safe, healthy, and warm when they leave.”

The coat drive officially began on Tuesday, November 1st. Anyone who wants to donate new coats or clean, gently used coats can drop them off Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 5 Team Wellness Center locations:

  • 2925 Russell St. Detroit MI 48207
  • 6309 Mack Ave. Detroit MI 48207
  • 11105 E Jefferson Ave, Detroit, MI 48214
  • 14799 Dix-Toledo Rd. Southgate, MI 48195
  • 34290 Ford Rd, Westland, MI 48185

Team is also seeking community partners who are willing to collect coats at their site or event. Businesses and community groups interested in participating can call 313-287-6705.
