Downtown Boxing Gym: A Time to Help Project in April

Mar 23, 2015 | News | 0 comments

April 11, 2015, 9:30 – 12:00 p.m.


The Downtown Boxing Gym Youth Program encourages kids 8-18 to engage in a demanding physical, academic and social program.  Nearly 95% of the children come from families that are living below the poverty line.  The kids are attracted by the desire to learn to box – with the help of the Youth Program, they stay active at the gym, in their schools and in their community.  The emphasis of “Books Before Boxing” has generated a 100% high school graduation rate of program participants.

Project scope: Clean and prep interior gym walls and interior office spaces. Sweep and clean floor surfaces.  Time-permitting, prime concrete masonry unit walls.  Bring your own work gloves/plastic gloves.  If you have available, bring brooms, dust pans, buckets, sponge mops, wash rags, cleaning supplies, small scrapers, hammers, or Phillips or flat screwdrivers and step ladders.  A dumpster will be on site for debris.  Time-permitting, office walls will be primed.  Accordingly, please bring paint brushes.

Location: Downtown Boxing Gym  |  6445 E. Vernor Highway |  Detroit, MI  48216 | Map
