Ask Dr. Nandi Charities 6th Annual Coat Drive — All-Ages Fundraiser and Coat Collection at Hard Rock Café Detroit 12/1/2018
Ask Dr. Nandi Charities is on a mission to provide warmth to Detroiters in need this winter by collecting thousands of winter coats for donation to several local charities. Everyone is invited to join their efforts by donating a new or gently used coat at several area locations from Dec.1st to Nov.25th, and/or by attending the 6th Annual Coat Drive event at Hard Rock Café Detroit on Friday, December 1st 3-9p.m.
All ages are welcome to attend this festive and celebratory 3-9pm event by donating $20 or a new, or gently used, men’s, women’s, or children’s coat at the door. Attendees will enjoy live entertainment and family-friendly activities including face-painting and Michigan Event Services, Inc. photo booth; and will make a difference in the lives of those who are unable to afford a warm coat this winter. Dr. Nandi Charities has a goal of collecting 5,000 coats, which will be delivered to Coalition On Temporary Shelter, Mariners Inn, Matrix Human Services, and Detroit Community Schools. A team of volunteers will set up coat racks at these organizations to allow recipients the opportunity to browse and pick out a coat that fits properly, and that they are proud to wear.
“My parents taught me about giving. Making someone else’s life better is the goal. My purpose is to enrich someone else’s life, and to teach others how to be giving as well.” — Dr. Nandi
