Thanks to the generosity of Detroit Tiger’s fans, some people who have been affected by disaster this winter will be a little warmer.
As part of the Detroit Tiger’s Annual Caravan the first 100 fans to bring hats. mittens, gloves, and socks to Hockeytown Authentics in Troy Thursday were able meet and have their picture taken with Austin Jackson and Matt Scherzer of the Detroit Tigers.
People were more than generous by donating items and some monetary donations to benefit the American Red Cross.
Thank you to all who came out and our wonderful Red Cross Volunteers!
Locally, the Red Cross responds to an average of five home fires a day. Typically, the Red Cross assists families who have been affected by fire by providing food, clothing and shelter as well as mental health and a touch of comfort when at times people have just lost everything.
