SHARE DETROIT KICKS OFF SUMMER OF VOLUNTEERING AT JIMMY JOHN’S FIELD, JUNE 11

 “Summer SHARE” campaign encourages metro Detroiters to spend their summer volunteering and creating exciting memories to share when they return to work or school

DETROIT SHARE Detroit is stepping up to the plate this summer by launching its Summer SHARE initiative, kicking off a summer of volunteerism with a fun family event at Jimmy John’s Field on Saturday, June 11 at 6 p.m. The Summer SHARE initiative encourages metro Detroiters to get out and give back to their communities this summer by volunteering with one of the nearly 300 nonprofits and charities throughout Oakland, Macomb and Wayne Counties on the SHARE Detroit platform. 

 “As the summer approaches, many people are looking forward to rest and relaxation. But unfortunately, need doesn’t get a vacation. Our nonprofits need volunteers more than ever right now. We hope the community will come together with our nonprofits to create a stronger metro Detroit,” said Janette Phillips, Executive Director of SHARE Detroit.

“Summer in Michigan is all about creating memories you’re excited to share when you return to work or school in the fall. What better stories to share than volunteering with a nonprofit whose cause speaks to you? Donating just a few hours of your time this summer can make a huge impact in your local community,” said Karen Boyd, Volunteer Specialist at SHARE Detroit.

To find a mission that matters the most to them, volunteers can choose from hundreds of volunteer opportunities and numerous communities to support on Share Detroit’s website at ShareDetroit.org. They can also meet some of the 300 executive directors and learn more about the SHARE DETROIT nonprofits at the June 11 kickoff event.

For $40 a ticket, attendees will have the opportunity to enjoy the Birmingham Bloomfield Beavers vs. the Utica Unicorns game on the patio, enjoy a barbeque buffet and, for the kids, there will be a meet and greet with JJ the Bat Dog and the chance to run the bases after the game. $10 from each ticket will be donated to a nonprofit of the attendees’ choice at checkout.
