Every Saturday, on the same street corner, the nonprofit group Elevate Detroit hosts a CommuniD BBQ for the homeless. For eight years, the BBQ has run entirely on pure generosity. It feeds almost 200 homeless people every week in downtown Detroit. This gathering has become a staple in the neighborhood and an incredible testament to Detroit pride.

Now, due to new property restructuring, the BBQ is losing its location. The local community has come to rely on this gathering as a not only a source of food but a place of support and positive encouragement. Let’s give the BBQ a permanent home!
