At 826michigan, we offer every single one of our programs at absolutely no cost to students. And in addition to covering the program costs, we also go through lots of supplies each month to keep things running.
We always need help to make our work happen and hope you’ll consider spending some time as a volunteer, making a cash donation at any level, or visiting the wish list below for ideas about what we can most use. Thank you!
