May 18, 2020

SOUTHFIELD, Mich., (May 18, 2020)The Salvation Army of Metro Detroit is looking for volunteers to write thank you notes that will be delivered with donuts to essential workers on the front lines (healthcare, police and fire) on National Donut Day, Friday, June 5.

This year, The Salvation Army will bring hope to the emergency response and healthcare workers who are on the front lines in this trying time.

  • The Salvation Army - Divisional Headquarters 16130 Northland Drive, Southfield 48075 (the entrance under the red awning at the rear of the building)
