Farmington Hills-based Akebono Brake Corp. has donated $1,400 to Heart 2 Hart Detroit, whose mission is to provide food, clothing, hygienic products and hope to Detroit’s homeless and needy population.
“The donation from Akebono will provide roughly 500 meals and 250 new clothing items for the homeless men and women of Detroit,” says Larry Oleinick, president of Heart 2 Hart Detroit. “We are grateful for Akebono’s generosity that will directly impact the lives of so many who need a helping hand.”
Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, Heart 2 Hart Detroit volunteers go out into the streets of Detroit to distribute life-sustaining items to hundreds of homeless Detroiters. They also work to connect people to community service organizations, rehabilitation facilities and potential employers and reconnect family members.
