The Detroit Pistons and the Detroit Youth Choir thank health care workers everywhere for their strength and dedication in response to the COVID-19 crisis. Inspired by their efforts, Tom Gores, Arn Tellem and the Detroit Pistons are donating $250,000 to the Community Foundation for Southeast Michigan’s COVID-19 health fund. Funds will be used to address urgent health-related needs in the community. You can join us in those efforts here:
The Pistons organization has rallied support for multiple COVID-19 relief efforts recently: Last week Tom Gores purchased and delivered 100,000 surgical-grade masks for the City of Detroit to support first responders and city workers; the organization is made the newly constructed Performance Center downtown available to health officials for crisis response activities, if needed; in partnership with Wayne County and corporate partners, the organization made a $370,000 funding grant to Forgotten Harvest; the Pistons are also helping the City of Detroit communicate important messages to residents through a series of Public Service Announcements featuring popular players from the past and present and created a centralized repository of COVID-19 resources accessible here.
