Detroit, MI (November 6, 2019) – Team Wellness Center (Team) in conjunction with Team Cares Inc. has kicked off their coat drive for 2019. The “Team Cares Coat Drive” will run through December 20th.
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 and lack the resources to purchase coats to keep them warm during the winter.
“A warm coat is something that most of us take for granted, but many adults and children with mental illness can’t afford one,” said Pamela Jastrabek, President & COO of Team Wellness Center. “We want to ensure that they are not forgotten or left out this winter.”
The coat drive officially began on Monday, October 28th with Team’s staff donating coats themselves and accepting donations from the community. Anyone who wants to donate new coats or clean, gently used coats can drop them off Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. at both Detroit Team Wellness Center locations:
- 2925 Russell St. Detroit MI 48207
- 6309 Mack Ave. Detroit MI 48207
Team is also seeking community partners to help with the coat drive. Team will deliver collection boxes to partners who are willing to accept donations at their site or event. To have a donation box placed at your location or a community event call 313-331-3435.
