Since 2014, SEED has served more than 1,000 Detroit metro residents annually through the provision of emergency food, summer enrichment, financial literacy and housing counseling. Proceeds from the event will allow the organization to continue to fulfill our mission to provide food, clothing, education and training while promoting self-sufficiency and empowerment directly to low- to moderate-income families and communities.
"We are excited to celebrate the great work SEED is doing in the Detroit area while bringing attention to the important needs many in our communities still face," said Nichole Mattison, SEED Vice President of Programs. "Our partners have answered the call to create awareness about the need for more after school and summer enrichment, housing counseling and financial capability training for our most vulnerable residents and we're encouraging more to join us."
Axemen Motorcycle Club and Wolverine Harley Davidson are joining the community nonprofit as sponsors for Motofest 2018. The event will begin at the dealership located in Clinton Township ending with a festival including live music, vendors, community services, food trucks and entertainment at the Axemen Motorcycle Club located on South Street. Proceeds from this great day will go towards funding the organization's continued work on behalf of low to moderate income families in Detroit.
"Axemen Motorcycle Club is proud to partner with SEED for the first MotoFest Ride and Festival here in Detroit" said Darrell McLaurin, President of Axemen Motorcycle Club. "Looking at the long history of our organization, it's events like this that cement our commitment to building stronger communities, contributing to impactful civic engagement initiatives, and creating inclusive ridership at every opportunity."
Since 2014, SEED has had a tremendous impact on the Detroit community through housing counseling and education for dozens of recipients of the Housing Choice Voucher Program, helping them reach the dream of homeownership. SEED continues to provide food, clothing, education and training while promoting self-sufficiency and empowerment directly to low- to moderate-income families and communities. The organization also provides emergency food and has served more than 150 scholars through the SEED-CDF Freedom School and SEED Summer Bridge Enrichment Program.
