Daughter of fallen marine collecting blankets for homeless

Posted: Updated:
SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (WJBK) -

Eight-year-old Jaden Burnette, the daughter of a fallen marine, has been collecting blankets and plans on giving them to homeless people in Pontiac. Jaden started the project she calls "Jaden's Loving Arms" several weeks ago.

So far she's collected around 30 blankets and is also accepting hats and gloves. Last year Jaden donated toys and served meals.

On October 1st she plans on giving them to people living at the Phoenix Center in Pontiac.

If you would like to give donations the Family Video at 1187 West Huron in Waterford has setup a drop-off box throughout the weekend.
