Countless people are facing staggering statistics of homelessness throughout the country in 2020.  According to the National Alliance to End Homelessness, 8,351 people are homeless on any given night in the state of Michigan alone.  That is why the UAW joined and the EMG Foundation to cosponsor a sleeping bag drive for the homeless.

The Mildred Gaddis show broadcasted the Bed in a Bag Radiothon live on Sunday, Dec. 6, 2020, from McDonalds,  located at 1000 Mack Ave Detroit, Michigan from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m.  The 6th annual event is a community effort to raise money for sleeping bags, hats, socks and other cold-weather necessities given directly to homeless residents.

President Rory L. Gamble is asking the community to make a donation to help keep the less fortunate warm.

Donations can be made directly to the EMF Foundation through December 31, 2020 at: 25875 Golf Point Drive, Southfield, Michigan, 48075 or please call (313) 737-3147.
