The Woodward Corridor Initiative team has been working closely with a number of community stakeholders over the last year to improve the lives of area residents in a variety of ways. Earlier this week our friends at the Detroit Institute of Arts provided us with passes for local families to explore the museum over the holiday break. We need your help to spread the word to area residents. Below you will find a flyer promoting this giveaway. Please share with your clients and fellow residents.
From Monday, December 12 to Friday, December 16, we will be passing out family four packs of tickets on a first-come first-serve basis. We are excited to offer this just in time for the holidays.
If you have any questions don’t hesitate to contact Nicole Brown at 313.420.6004! Thank you in advance for assistance.

Dear Friends of Mariners Inn,
Winter is upon us and some of our men are in need of coats. When they are not in counseling and group activities at Mariners Inn, they are outdoors traveling to job interviews, doctor visits, and other activities. It is very important for them to be protected from the elements.
We are seeking new and gently used winter coats, especially sizes XL and larger. If you have a coat to donate, please contact Doreen Mannino at 313.962.9446 x230 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are also looking for a display case to spotlight client art work. Can you help?
Please check out the photos from Adopt a Family on Facebook: Mariners Inn. Our men provided Christmas to four local families in need!
