Hometown Huddle: Detroit Veterans Day of Service

Boys & Girls Club - The Lloyd H. Diehl Club

Event Overview

Among the most powerful ways to honor those who have served, is to continue serving with their sacrifice in mind. On Veterans Day, join The Mission Continues Detroit Platoons for a special collaboration with The Detroit Lions, Comerica Bank, and Caniff Electric Supply Co., and United Way for Southeastern Michigan for a day of impact at the Boys and Girls Club. The clubhouse serves 60-100 children and teens daily, and is in continuous need of support to create and maintain a safe, welcoming environment for the youth to gather, learn, and play. For Hometown Huddle, we will take on a number of projects to revive the clubhouse and encourage creativity and learning. Projects will include the construction of a reading loft, painting, and the complete overhaul of the students' coat and backpack storage room. Volunteers should be equipped with a can-do attitude and the ability to work as a team. This event is family-friendly, and will include activities for younger children. Children under 18 years require an adult companion who can sign a liability release on their behalf. All ages and abilities are welcomed so please contact the organizers if you have any additional needs or for a special volunteer role request.
