Southfield Human Services, in partnership with Carl Smith, owner of Bully’s Tree Service, will give away 2,000 new winter hats, gloves, and socks to residents of Oakland, Wayne and Macomb Counties on Friday, December 21 from 1:00 – 3:00 the Parks & Recreation Building (Room 115), 26000 Evergreen Road.

Interested residents will receive a winter hat, pair of gloves and one pair of socks per person, on a first-come, first served basis, while supplies last.

“We helped 500 families stay warm in 2016 and assisted 1,500 families in 2017. This year, we will be helping even more,” commented Rhonda Terry, Southfield Human Services outreach caseworker. “This is a great opportunity to give back to the community during this season of caring and sharing.”

“Every person should have the basic necessities during the holidays,” added Carl Smith, owner of Bully’s Tree Service located in Southfield since 1992.

Special guests will include Bernard Gibson, former member of The Temptations, Alfred “Al” Jones, nicknamed “Tiger Cat,” former boxer and 1968 Olympic Bronze Medalist, as well as appearances by Billy Davis and Mighty Michael Mendelson. Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Rhythm and Blues Hall of Fame and the Doo Wop Hall of Fame, Billy Davis was the lead guitarist for Hank Ballard and the Midnighters for 25 years and also served as a mentor to Jimi Hendrix. Mighty Michael Mendelson is a 10-year-old fourth grader who plays the blues harp and harmonica.
