We are collaborating with the For the Love of Humanity organization at Oakland University to gather menstrual and toiletry items so they can assemble and distribute kits to homeless women of the Detroit and Pontiac Area. Please feel free to bring tampons, pads, and other toiletries to help out, and we will give you $5 OFF OF THE TICKET PRICE (Saturday only)!!!

In addition, a portion of the profits will go to Alternatives for Girls (http://alternativesforgirls.org/) which is an organization that helps homeless and high-risk girls and young women avoid violence, teen pregnancy and exploitation, and helps them to explore and access the support, resources and opportunities necessary to be safe, to grow strong and to make positive choices in their lives. AFG accomplishes this mission through three key services: AFG Prevention, the AFG Shelter/Transition to Independent Living Program (TIL) and AFG Outreach.
