In The Image hosted a Donation Drive for Heartside Park Tent City
and dropped off what was collected on Wednesday, December 23!
As reported in the news, Heartside Park "Tent City" saw an increase in individuals experiencing homelessness and utilizing tents in the park to provide shelter from the bitter cold. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, homelessness has increased in Grand Rapids and other areas and it's reported that there were upwards of 100 people living at Heartside Park. As the winter weather approaches, these individuals are in great need of clothing, sleeping bags, and toiletries. Together, we were able to collect and provide so many of these basic necessities for these individuals and we can't thank everyone who donated enough!
