WHAT IS

WARMING HEARTS & HANDS?

This program gives the gift of winter warmth to homeless or underserved families through an annual winter outerwear and blanket drive.

You donate cash, new blankets or winter outerwear – coats, hats, scarves, mittens, gloves; we distribute 100 percent of this before the holidays through vetted nonprofits.

Make It Better Media and our board underwrites all administrative and fundraising costs.

Please contact sharon@makeitbetter.net or call our office at 847-256-4642 to learn more or to volunteer your organization as a collection point too.
