The Guy Hurley team gathered to pack food for a worthy organization based in Detroit called Focus: HOPE. Approximately 38,000 senior citizens in 42 metropolitan Detroit communities receive nutritional, supplemental food through Focus: HOPE each month. For many of these seniors who do not have transportation, the box of food is their main source of nutritious food. At a time when they should be enjoying their golden years, many are barely able to pay living and medical expenses. The U.S. Department of Agriculture food supplements ensure that our older citizens get the assistance they need. We are grateful to support an organization that is transforming so many lives in the city where we work, live and play.
What better way to kickoff warmer weather and celebrate our clients and team through a Tigers Opening Day celebration? Opening Day is practically a Detroit holiday. Although the weather was brisk and winter coats were present, we had a blast welcoming the Tigers back home with old and new friends, amazing food and some Guy Hurley style fun. Thank you to those that came to say hi or stayed with us all day to celebrate. More than 100 people were in our tailgate lot throughout the day. Here are some of our favorite photos from the day:
As a company dedicated to supporting the community in which we do business, were always looking for ways to help deserving organizations through our time and resources. Recently, we had the privilege of sponsoring a fundraiser to benefit Sweet Dreamzzz, a nonprofit organization committed to improving childrens health, well-being and academic performance by providing sleep education and bedtime essentials to economically disadvantaged students and their families. Associated General Contractors of Americas Michigan Chapter raised $6,500 to support Sweet Deramzzzs mission. Its things we take for grantedlike a toothbrush, blanket, pillowthat many children in our community dont have. The lack of necessary tools for a good nights sleep contributes to a lack of growth and development, healthy brain function and emotional well-being. Funds raised from this event will go toward future sleep education programs. Students in the program receive a brand new sleeping bag or Sweet Dreamzzz blanket,
