MACC Development is a christian communtiy development corporation that serves the 48214 zip code on Detroit's lower east side with three focus: youth and education, housing and blight and economic development.
Two weeks ago MACC Development's trailer that has been used to support the growth of our MACC Sports program was stolen. MACC Sports hosts three different athletic leagues and two athletic camps reaching hundreds of local youth each year. In every league and camp, teaching the Gospel is the foundational component and reason that these programs exist, while also building relationships with the families that participate, and then learning sports skills.
The trailer was filled with recently purchased uniforms, soccer balls, goal posts, cleats, shin-guards, and additional gear for our youth participants. WXYZ Detroit tried to help us spread the word but it was never found. We take inventory after each season and have estimated that at least $9,000 worth of equipment that has been purchased or donated since it's inaugural season in Fall 2012 was stolen. Without the trailer that was purchased just two years ago for $3,000, MACC’s soccer program, which begins in Spring 2018, is in jeopardy.
We need your help to raise $12,000!
