GENESEE COUNTY, MI (WNEM) -

A Mid-Michigan commissioner is hoping to bring some warmth to the needy, but she needs your help!

Genesee County Board of Commissioners Brenda Clack (D-Flint) has been collecting blankets for more than a month as part of her 16th annual Blanket Drive.

But with the Dec. 16 deadline looming, and the drive still short on blankets, she is appealing to the public.

"It hurts to know that little children are sleeping on a cold floor during these very hard winters in our community. Whatever I can do, I will", said Commissioner Clack.

New or nearly new blankets can be brought to the Genesee County Administration Building, Room 312.

The drive is also asking for children's gloves and hats or monetary donations.

They will be distributed to Catholic Charities, Women’s Shelter and My Brother’s Keeper.

For more information or other ways to drop-off blankets, contact Commissioner Clack at (810) 257-3020.
