SAY Detroit is proud to organize volunteers to help Detroiters through A Time To Help. On Saturday, June 11, 30 volunteers descended on Focus: HOPE to help organize food packages for seniors. In total, 17 pallets with 935 boxes of dry goods were assembled. Thank you to our onsite volunteers and to our donors who make all of this work possible!

World Bicycle Day

Friday, June 3 was World Bicycle Day! SAY Detroit celebrated by distributing restored bikes from our Mi-Cycle program to students, families, and faculty from The School at Marygrove. Thank you to everyone who donated “wheels” via The Somerset Collection. The bikes were cleaned, tuned, re-tubed, re-tired and restored by Chuck Nagy, Director of Mi-Cycle and founder of Heavy Pedalz!
