Mariners Inn, in partnership with the Rotary Club of Grosse Pointe, collaborated on a beautification project to clean up and enhance the external grounds of the agency, Saturday, June 29th. Despite a few sprinkles and ominous clouds, community volunteers, Rotary members, residents of Mariners Inn and staff proved that "many hands do indeed make quick work".
Paul Rentenbach, the president of the Grosse Pointe Rotary and member Dave Allard have been wonderful to work with", reported Shauna Vercher-Morrow, Director of Fundraising and Special Events. "They have been very committed to supporting our agency and it's residents." She added, "Our grounds needed a face lift and with all of the new developments going on in Midtown, we want to make sure that our little slice of Cass Avenue is in step with all of the other renovations going on around us."
The Rotary Club of Grosse Pointe awarded Mariners Inn a $3,500 beautification grant to assist with cleaning up the grounds of the Detroit homeless shelter. The project helped beautify the external grounds of Mariners Inn to provide an inviting and comfortable physical environment for residents and visitors in a setting conducive to recovery.
