Blessed in Brightmoor

Our group, Our Blessed in Brightmoor, organized and carried out a back to school event for the children. We assigned each other tasks and utilized our networks to provide gifts to 200 children — partnering with the Detroit Leadership Academy, State Representative David Nathan, and City Covenant Church. Collectively we were able to provide 200 backpacks with school supplies, 150 uniforms, 105 gloves, and 80 hats. We also provided music, food, free haircuts, and entertainment for the event.

We provided school supplies to 200 children in our community.
