There are over 10,000 homeless individuals living in Detroit, including 2,000 children. We are calling on our Social Work Warrior Community to support our neighbors and join us on March 1st at the WSU Muslim Women Social Work Association student org’s annual Blessing Bag event. The event will bring together students, faculty, staff, and supporters to create lunch bags and winter care packages for the local Detroiters experiencing homelessness. We ask that all attendees bring one item to donate.

Unable to make the event? No problem, you can still drop off donated items in the Blessing Bags box located in the School of Social Work front lobby until February 28, 2020. Requested donated items include peanut butter, almond butter, jelly, granola bars, crackers, bottled water, winter hats, gloves, and scarves.
