On Saturday, October 5, 2019, we will continue the
tradition. The Greater Detroit District Superintendent of the United
Methodist Church, Rev. Dr. Charles Boayue, Jr., invites all to our
Eighth Annual Hands4Detroit! Join volunteers and Detroit
neighbors in participating in beautification and clean-up projects, in
performing small building and renovation projects, and join in a
food campaign with Gleaners to drive out hunger in the Motor City.

This year, we will join the Warrendale Community and the
Islamic Center of Detroit for a time of work, food and fellowship.
Everyone (seniors, youth, young-adults, adults), can take
part and are invited to spend at least part of the day with us! But
register online at hands4detroit.org so that we can accommodate
you and determine the number of lunches to prepare.
