the project


Project Santa will provide toys to up to 50 kids in 30 families for the holidays in Detroit. Often kids in low-income households or with incarcerated or deceased parents don't get to experience Christmas. 

The hope is that this project will take the pressure off a few people in my city and bring them hope behind this blessing. 

It takes a village to make sure children are cared for. Join the village by donating to make sure these kids and families are able to experience joy this season! 


the steps

Once cash is in hand we will begin the application process and also accepting stories from people who wants to refer a family member or friend in need
