Burners without Borders Detroit Backpacking Project 2014

Tis the season one again…and we need YOUR help to help others..

WHEN: Sunday December 7, from 2 to 5 pm

WHERE: A New Life on Woodward at Milwaukee in Detroit

WHY: because without people like you the Homeless Backpack Project simply can not happen!..thanks

WHY2: Because we are fortunate enough to be able to help others..and we want to!

We have about 400 backpacks to fill with canned food, can openers (must have those!), hand warmers, peanut butter packs, ponchos, socks, gloves, hats, hygiene products and whatever else we get donated!

If you have items to donate please bring them..we can always use them, esp needed are $5.00 McDonalds gift cards, scarves or fleece neck wraps (dark colors please) and hygiene packs for men and non-expired canned meat…same as last year!!

You are are welcome as always to take Backpacks with them if they feel comfortable approaching homeless, if not we will get them all out on the streets. Last year we had over 15 folks get packs on the streets by themselves..most ever..thank you so much.

I look forward to mingling with you as we create the backpacks and form new friendships and strengthen older ones!
