By  | 

ESCANABA, Mich. (WLUC) - The annual Walk for Warmth is being held Saturday in Escanaba, Manistique, and Menominee. It helps to raise money for anyone locally, who might be facing a heating emergency.

This can include fixing heaters, collecting firewood, or more depending on the situation.

"We provide heat assistance through grants but often times those people may just not qualify and so we will help people who are just above the grant limit on those, we're helping people who are lower income, really the working poor almost," said Executive Director for the CAA, Julie Moberg

The Walk for Warmth usually raises more than $70,000 for the Community Action Agency. The money stays within the county it was raised in. The walks in Escanaba and Menominee begin at 10 a.m. local time. The one in Manistique is at 2 p.m. local time.
