Give back to the community by participating in the Leadership Oakland "Day of Service"!
June 2, 2018
Leadership Oakland LOXXVIII Day of Service, in partnership with the HOPE Recuperative Center, is raising funds to provide a recuperative garden for the clients to enjoy.
To do this the class will execute the following:
Installing a recuperative garden behind the new HOPE Recuperative Center to include:
- Building raised garden beds
- Creating seating for all ability levels
- Incorporating peaceful elements such as a bird bath in the center of the garden
Removing the old parking area completed ahead of the project date by licensed contractors
Laying topsoil and reseeding over the parking area
We need your help to ensure that the 3,200 homeless people in Oakland County, who are hospitalized 4-5 times the rate of the general population, are able to heal in a stable and restorative environment.
