Philanthropy initiatives are very important to the members of CREW Detroit. Currently, the chapter participates in the following philanthropic endeavors:
- Charity of Choice: Philanthropy. Each year CREW Detroit selects a charity on which they focus their philanthropic efforts. CREW Members have rallied to build something special – quite literally. Through donations of time, talent and expertise, members of CREW Detroit helped to plan, design, fund, purchase and build new facilities for First Step and Alternatives for Girls. From the office to the worksite, we’ve gotten our hands dirty building homes for Habitat for Humanity, improved schools for Life Remodeled and restored family’s quality of living with Humble Design
- Holiday Party: Gratitude. CREW Outreach celebrates by going above and beyond. Every December, immersed in an atmosphere of camaraderie, stewardship and gratitude – the CREW Detroit Holiday Party holds a popular raffle. The results are cash and in-kind donations to more local charities. We don’t just agree with CREW Network's vision. We create it in our own community.
