Heart to Hart Detroit delivering essentials to those in need

Posted: Updated:
(WJBK) -

Heart to Hart Detroit, as in the human heart to Hart Plaza, is a local nonprofit foundation that delivers essential supplies to the homeless and people in need in Detroit. The foundation sends a car at noon on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays that is full of essential items like socks, hand warmers and food.

"It might be food; it might be compassion; it might be just someone that they can count on and that's what we do," says Larry Oleinick. He and his team are trying to service as many people as possible and are now in need of a bigger vehicle to transport the items downtown.

To those like Christina, who is currently living and sleeping on the streets, this help makes a world of difference.

"No matter what happens, as cold as you get, as bad as people are to you on the street, you've got somebody that knows you're here and that's looking for you on a daily basis. I know I'm going to get fed. I know I'm going to be warm. I know I'm going to get to smile at least once a day," she tells FOX 2's Jason Carr.
