The Grand Rapids Griffins and Fox Motors are collecting new and gently used coats and blankets, along with new hats, gloves and scarves, from now until Oct. 15 for Guiding Light Mission.

For every new coat donated during this time, donors will receive a voucher to purchase up to four Griffins tickets at $10 apiece for the Friday, Oct. 22 game versus Milwaukee. Donations will be accepted during business hours at the Griffins' office at Van Andel Arena and all 18 Fox Motors dealership locations, including Delta Imports, Fox Acura, Fox Ford Mazda, Fox Honda, Fox Hyundai Kia, Fox Nissan, Fox Pontiac Buick GMC, Fox Saab and Fox Yamaha in the Grand Rapids area.

"We are excited for our first community event utilizing all of our affiliate locations." stated Dan DeVos, DP Fox Ventures president and CEO. "We believe that the community will come together and help keep Michigan warm this winter."

"This is a tremendous opportunity for the community to share their blessings with others. What better way than to make sure everyone stays warm this winter," said Stuart Ray, Guiding Light Mission's executive director.
