Hands 4 Detroit 2015 will offer the same diversity of projects for individuals of all ages and abilities as in the past, but rather than projects hosted at sites throughout the area, the entire event will be concentrated in one community. Hands 4 Detroit: Eastside 2015 will partner with the Mt. Elliott Business and Community Association (MEBCA) to bring the project to this community. MEBCA is one of Detroit’s oldest neighborhoods, with many homes built in the 1800’s. Registration will begin in mid-August at Hands4Detroit.org.
