WARREN — Leaps and Bounds Family Services representatives are seeking assistance from local businesses to help make the agency’s second annual “Warm Hands…Warms Hearts” holiday campaign a success.
Last year, 10 local businesses partnered with Leaps and Bounds to collect more than 400 gloves, hats and other cold winter items for children and families of LBFS. The goal this year is to expand the drop-off sites to 20 businesses and collect 1,000 items.
It’s easy to become involved. Business owners that would like to help LBFS reach its goal can call the agency’s office and ask to have a holiday-themed file-size shoebox dropped off at the establishment. From there, patrons and employees can donate brand-new or gently used winter hats, scarves, gloves and mittens.
This year’s drive runs from Dec. 1 through Jan. 31, 2013. The following Warren businesses are already participating: Good ‘N Plenty Resale Shop, Learning Gizmos, Nono’s Pizza, Regal Tire Shop and Shopper’s Market. Haney’s Family Restaurant and Taylor Door, both located in Center Line, also are participating, as is Abella Stone in Shelby Township.
Leaps and Bounds offers a number of programs to adults, youth and children, including adult basic education and parent/child interactive groups.
To participate in “Warm Hands…Warms Hearts,” contact Denise Dorsz at (586) 759-3895 or Deb Burkey at (586) 944-3832. Donations also can be dropped off to Leaps and Bounds Family Services at 8129 Packard in Warren.
