Hygiene and Winter Warmth Distribution to Detroit's Vulnerable

Hygiene and Winter Warmth Distribution to Detroit's Vulnerable

In SE Michigan, the harsh winter of 2023-24 created the challenges for society's most vulnerable. Mercy-USA for Aid and Development believes in the power of local communities to make a difference for neighbors in need.

With many local partners, Mercy-USA organized seven packaging events that resulted in the assembly of 1,000 hygiene packages, over 150 feminine hygiene packages, and 300 winter warmth packages.

With many local partners, Mercy-USA organized seven packaging events that resulted in the assembly of 1,000 hygiene packages, over 150 feminine hygiene packages, and 300 winter warmth package, including $50 gift cards for purchasing coats.

In addition to the kits provided by Mercy-USA, twelve donation boxes were strategically placed across Southeast Michigan, with seven in places of worship, three in educational institutions, and two in local businesses. The response from donors was overwhelming, providing a wide range of brand-new personal care and winter warmth items. From hygiene products to essential clothing items and everyday use items, the diverse donations from these boxes helped us meet the varying needs of beneficiaries.

The items collected from these donation boxes were distributed based on established needs to eleven shelters and transitional homes across Washtenaw County and Wayne County. This targeted approach ensured that the support reached those who needed it the most, bringing warmth and comfort during the winter months.

The generosity of donors not only provided essential items but also conveyed a message of hope and solidarity to those facing housing insecurity. Contributions made a tangible difference in the lives of individuals and families in the Detroit community, one package at a time
