Established in 1997 to galvanize volunteerism on a regular basis, A Time to Help stages monthly projects to aid the needy and promote unity in metro Detroit.

Since then, more than 200 monthly projects have been completed by thousands of volunteers, ranging from building houses, delivering meals, beautifying city streets, running adoption fairs, repairing homeless shelters, packing food, and hosting an annual Christmas party to a shelter for battered women.

Mitch Albom and WJR co-host Ken Brown lead each monthly project, usually held on Saturdays between 9AM – noon. Volunteers can sign up for one, two or all, and there are no requirements, except that, for most events, volunteers should be at least 18 years of age. Older teenagers can come if accompanied by at least one adult supervisor for every four of them.

A Time to Help During a Day of Service – April 2018

ATTH volunteers will be joining Comcast NBCUniversal employees during its national day of service in northeast Detroit. More than 100 volunteers will meet at the S.A.Y. Detroit Play Center at Lipke Park as a staging area. ATTH in partnership with Cities of Service, Comcast and the City of Detroit will provide two shifts of volunteers. Specifically,  ATTH volunteer tasks will include registering volunteers, distributing T-shirts, assisting with food service, and helping clean up the center after the event. Also joined by groups such as We Care about 7 Mile and Van Dyke, Comcast Cares will be beautifying and performing a general cleanup in the neighborhoods around the center. The project will further the city’s mission of Project Green Light, a program that promotes public safety.
