A Time to Help Spruce Up SAY Play

August 21, 2019

Project Description: SAY Detroit is teaming with sponsor Motor City Paint for a painting project at our SAY Play Center. We’ll be painting a number of rooms, including the cafeteria and kitchen, as we prepare the facility for fall semester at our nonprofit’s academic enrichment center. A team of volunteers will also be working outside on a landscape project (weeding, edging, planting and mulching) in front of the building. Several members of the Detroit Muscle Crew (SAY Detroit’s volunteer crew of skilled tradespeople) have volunteered to serve as “captains” overseeing each of the painting projects.

Date: Saturday, September 7

Time: 8:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
Please note the earlier start time. Thank you!
