Blanket Relief for Metro Detroit
The streets have become the cruelest and most unsuitable waiting room for affordable housing. According to the State of Michigan Annual Report, there are over 20,000 homeless adults and 7,000 homeless children in the state of Michigan.
Each year World Medical Relief distributes over 10,000 blankets in Metro Detroit to homeless shelters and other human service agencies. We need your help to continue providing the blankets to the people in need.
Since 2010, with your help and through partnerships with the Metro Detroit homeless shelters, churches and other agencies that provide services to Michigan’s homeless, we have provided over 120,000 new blankets to families who, without this help, have nothing to keep themselves warm.
This year, as you can imagine, your support is needed more than ever. There are opportunities for everyone to help, including service clubs, churches, corporations, and schools. This is how you can join this local relief effort:
Monetary support – Your dollar goes the furthest, we buy in bulk. Please donate to the "Blanket Relief" program in the Paypal Donation Page
Purchase twin size blankets and drop them off. Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. - 4 p.m.

Thank you for participating in this year’s local blanket relief and for spreading the word about this campaign. With your help, we can keep our neighbors warm.
