Clean out Your Linen Closet and Help out the Women of the Detroit Rescue Mission.

We just got this letter from a friend. In order to make donating easier for you, you can drop off any towels and bed linens at SKBK at 348 E. Maple, Birmingham, 48009. Ask for Erin, Dmitry or Maureen and we will make sure your towels are put to good use. I have recently learned of a situation that touched my heart. I want to help. I learned that the Detroit Rescue Mission is in need of many items. They feed thousands daily and house around 800 women each night. (I didn't get the stats on how many men per night). But my plight is for the women who stay nightly in the DRMM. I found out that they are so low on towels (and funds) that they have been cutting their towels into quarters so each woman has a piece of towel to dry with after their showers. This was a VERY short term solution they found out because each time they go through the wash cycles, the towels are fraying. Thus, less than they had. Speaking with a DRMM employee, we talked about a TOWEL AND BEDDING DRIVE. Please go through your linen closet... all of the towels that you don't use, no longer match your bathroom or whatever.. please stick them into a bag and get them to me. I will be collecting the towels through the entire month of November and plan on taking the towels December 10th up to the Mission. The towels don't have to be new, they will wash and use them! They can be ANY color, ANY size. The women need them, and will be thankful for them. I'd like the women of the DRMM to be able to each have their own towel.. that's 800!!! HUGE GOAL! Thank you for your kindness and generousity during this holiday season... to the women of DRMM who are in need.
