Because We Care packages

Our team is available to work with you, your children, or your group to find the right service opportunity, based on your interests and schedule. Parents and participants will receive a program orientation, detailed instructions and suggestions for executing projects, and ongoing support to provide guidance and information.

We are happy to work with you on one of your own volunteer ideas and we’re available to work with classrooms and other groups.

On Sunday, February 9th, 15 volunteers came together to make soup, sandwiches and cookies for the homeless to be distributed by Hart to Heart Detroit. We also made no-sew fleece scarves, cards, and goody bags that we filled with hand warmers, oat bars and other essentials.✡️
