In this season of Thanksgiving, fellowship and family gatherings, the MiraMed Family of Companies has created the MiraMed Circle of Warmth Campaign and partnered up with an exceptional project called the Empowerment Plan, a Detroit-based nonprofit organization focused on permanently elevating families from the generational cycle of homelessness. The project hires single parents from local shelters and provides them with training and full-time employment as seamstresses so that they can earn a stable income, find secure housing, and regain their independence. The individuals they hire manufacture a coat designed to meet the needs of those in the homeless community. The durable EMPWR Coat can transform into a sleeping bag at night or an over-the-shoulder bag when not in use.
We urge you to watch the introductory video to learn more about this great project and how you can get involved.
It costs $125 and takes 1.25 hours to make a sleeping bag coat. Thus far, coats have been distributed to all 50 states and 10 Canadian provinces. Please join the MiraMed Family of Companies in helping those in need by making a donation, no matter how large or small. Consider how great it would be to make a positive impact and change the generational cycle of homelessness by helping to keep warm one homeless person as part of your holiday giving.
Our goal is to raise enough money to buy 1,000 coats for those in need. Your support is greatly appreciated.
