Also present were leaders from SAY Detroit-run programs — including SAY Play, SAY Detroit Family Health Clinic, Better Together, and Mi-Cycle — who were there to accept distributed funding and to introduce their local partners.

This is one of the best days each and every year,” Albom said. “Helping other like-minded nonprofits in our region who help others is very meaningful and we know the money will be put to good use in their respective operations.”
