Detroit woman hosts coat drive so families don't have to pick between a coat and a turkey

Terra Carter knows what it's like to be on hard times during the COVID-19 pandemic. The outreach coordinator for New Deliverance Ministries in Detroit has been on hard times but is doing what she can to help others in need.

“I thought this would be a great opportunity to reach out and to give families a boost up," Carter said. "Things are really hard. It’s hard for everyone right now."

Carter will be collecting monetary and clothing donations throughout the next month and plans to give away coats, hats, gloves, and masks to hundreds in need on November 21. She doesn’t want parents to have to worry about letting their children down because she knows how that feels.
