FBMJ CARES: Winter Coat/Gear Drive for Foster Closet of Michigan-Western Wayne County

Cold weather is upon us and so is the community’s need for donations of cold weather gear. FBMJ Cares is collecting winter coats/gear to donate to the Foster Closet of Michigan-Western Wayne County.

The Foster Closet is an all-volunteer, tax-exempt non-profit organization providing aid to the Foster Care Community. Often children arrive in their foster home with only the clothes on their back—this may not include a warm coat, mittens, boots or a hat. Foster families may “shop” at Foster Closet for necessary items—all free of charge!


Here is how you can help

Foster Closet is in need of the following items:

  • New or gently used winter coats, mittens, hats, scarves, snow suits, boots, etc.
  • Sizes: Newborn to adult

Gently used items should be newly clean, without stains, without holes and with fully functional zippers/snaps.

Monetary donations are also accepted.

Checks should be made payable to the Foster Closet of Michigan Western Wayne County and can be sent to:

Foster Closet of Michigan Western Wayne County
14337 Blackburn St.
Livonia, MI 48154
