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

one of Detroit’s oldest neighborhoods, with many homes built in the
1800’s. Registration will begin in mid-August at Hands4Detroit.org.
