Support the Heidelberg Project in Detroit

BY BTL STAFF

The Heidelberg Project is a Detroit-based organization improving the lives of people and neighborhoods through art. The organization needs help to preserve one of only two houses left on 3600 Heidelberg St. in Detroit. The iconic Numbers House is the community center where the youth and neighborhood workshops are hosted along with up-and-coming artist exhibitions. It's cool, it's eclectic, but it's also falling down and help is needed to restore it. The building has no running water, a hole in the roof and is in need of new windows and a new electrical system, to name just a few of the required renovations. The project was created in 1986 by Tyree Guyton and his grandfather Sam Mackey to be enjoyed by future generations. Help the organization reach their goal of $100,000 by March 31 so they can begin construction this spring. Visit the Heidelberg 3.0 campaign page for more information. The Fred A. and Barbara M. Erb Family Foundation will match every dollar donated. For more information about the Heidelberg Project, visit the organization's website or call 313-974-6894.
