Construction Update from SAY Play

June 06, 2023

The Kelly and Matthew Stafford & Friends Education Center will not only expand SAY Detroit Play Center’s physical size, but the services it can offer to a broader community. And we’re thrilled to share that the construction project has made exciting progress this spring!

The 15,000-sq-ft annex will include classrooms, learning labs, and a theater, made possible by $1 million dollar gifts each from Matthew and Kelly Stafford, the A.A. Van Eslander Foundation, and Clarence & Jack Himmel Foundation. And of course, from more than 1,000 individual donors across Michigan who are invested in the success of the students who attend the premier learning center.
