Motor City Mitten Mission shifts gears to help Detroit’s most vulnerable population amid COVID-19 outbreak

Gail Marlow distributes food, clothing

DETROIT – Gail Marlow, co-founder of Motor City Mitten Mission, was sharing acts of kindness long before the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. But her outreach to Detroit’s homeless during the coronavirus crisis is more important than ever.

Marlow takes to the streets every night to distribute food, clothing and what she said is the most important -- hope.

"Everybody deserves a second chance to get their life back together,” she said.
