DETROIT (AP) - The annual Walk for Warmth takes place this weekend in Detroit as part of an effort to help people keep the heat on at their homes.

The event is Saturday at Ford Field and typically draws concerned citizens and students from schools across Wayne County to take laps around the concourse at the home of the Detroit Lions. There will be on-field bounce houses, games and locker room tours.

The Wayne Metropolitan Community Action Agency administers utility assistance programs such as the Michigan Energy Assistance Program and the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program, but those funds can’t help everyone.

Money raised during Walk for Warmth can help others who might not qualify for aid, such as those facing medical issues or job loss.
