With your Help New Era Detroit Can Purchase a Building
Organized by: New Era Detroit
EVENT DATE Oct 05, 2015
New Era Detroit is a Non Profit Organization formed to bring back unity within African American communities by encouraging us to buy, build & invest in the communities that we live in. Established in 2014, It has been a very active year for N.E.D. from our community clean ups & board ups throughout the city to our "Hood 2 Hood" Campaign where, for 17 Saturday's STRAIGHT, we visited 17 different neighborhoods within Detroit with the goal to Wake our People up to our current living conditions & the most effective ways to improve them. We do so much of our work in the streets that we haven't even obtained a building yet & with the Wayne County Tax Sale fast approaching we are asking for the help of the community to make this a reality!
Our Goal is to raise $2,500 towards the purchase of a residential property (Single Family or Multifamily) to be used as a Community Resource HUB & Headquarters for New Era Detroit. Of course this house will be used as the primary space where New Era Detroit will hold it’s meetings and process day to day operations however there will be much more to it than that. Unlike many other headquarter spaces, we also have plans to make it a community resource space! Providing free Wi-Fi & computer usage to Detroiters who possibly can’t afford to add another bill like internet & cable to their monthly expenses. This will help people looking for work within the neighborhood & kids who can't do their homework to the best of their ability because they may lack internet access. There will also be 2 rooms allocated specifically for people going through hardships who need a place to stay where we will offer up to a week of free board within the headquarters. Your donation in turn will not just help New Era Detroit obtain a building, you will be making a conscious effort towards helping family's and children throughout the city improve their future with more than just hope but change that they can actually see, Thank you.
