Second Mile Center

$250 of $100,000 goal

Raised by 7 people in 29 months
Help us keep our doors open so that Second Mile Center of Detroit can continue to be the bright spot in this neighborhood.  Kids here need a safe place to be after school and in the summer away from gang violence. If SMCD doesn't exist these kids will go hungry, join gangs, become violent, not go to school, and end up dead or in jail. SMCD helps nurture these children, keeps them safe, feeds and clothes them, helps them with their homework, plays with them, and provides opportunities for them that they would never get elsewhere. Watch this video to meet Ruth Azar, the program director and some of the children at SMCD.

I had the privilege to spend a summer volunteering at the second mile center in 2008, and my time there has not only changed my life. It has changed my outlook ok the world, and has helped bring me to the career path I have chosen. My entire family has been apart of helping this mission and I want nothing more than to see it grow. I am so blessed to not only have gained so much from the children from second mile center but also a dear friend in Ruth Azar as well. My grandma Judy would be so proud to see how far this mission as grown! God bless!
