BizStream Kicks Off Third Annual Hats & Mittens Drive

BizStream Kicks Off Third Annual Hats & Mittens Drive
Over the past two years Team BizStream, with the help of local community members, have helped to keep hundreds of children warm during Michigan’s frosty months with our Warm Heads, Warm Hands, Warm Hearts project. We’ve had great success with this project over the past couple of years and this year we want to keep the tradition going! 


Our Goal

Once again, we kicked off our third annual Warm Hearts project at BizStream’s annual Chili Cook Off back in October. BizStream team members, along with our friends and families, lovingly gave hats and mittens of all sizes, colors, and styles. Our goal is to collect 100 hats and 100 mittens for 100 chilly children. We are off to a great start, but now we need your help. We are now asking community members to donate through December 8th so that we can successfully reach our goal.


Who Benefits

Donations will be given to children enrolled in the GRPS Student Homeless Program.


Where to Donate

If you'd like to donate, we are happily accepting donations! Please drop off new hats and mittens in the BizStream lobby. Drop off times are 8:00 AM - 6:00 PM and run through December 08.
 

Why We Do It

It is so heartening when we receive a gift from a generous donor, in this case, many donors that allow us to say “yes” to one more child, family, or deserving adult experiencing financial hardship in these very trying times. 

While we are far from eliminating housing injustice in our community, this precious gift helped to make a difference in the lives of many struggling families. Because of your generosity, families in transition at Grand Rapids Public Schools will have one less barrier to education, to learn, grow and excel.

Your winter-gear donation is truly a gift. Mothers were humbled and grateful and children had a fantastic time picking out winter accessories that fit their personality. 

THANK YOU to you and your generous team at BizStream from allowing me to bring this joy to our families.

-Tammy Dillon, GRPS Homeless Liaison
