Soup's September Project

Dear Friends,

In 1950, at age 9, Angie Johnson moved to North Corktown. She grew up in a neighborhood teeming with life. Later, as a single mother, she raised her children here and developed a reputation for having a generous heart, freely giving what she had to those less fortunate in her community. She watched as her neighborhood descended into chaos, as people moved away and houses burned down. Angie's attachment to the neighborhood was too strong to ever consider leaving. Instead, she purchased the lots on her block where houses had once been and has worked hard to keep them in immaculate condition ever since. Angie, with her commitment to community, persistence and generosity, is surely the driving force that has turned the tide on our block.

Detroit residents (and brothers) Ben and Dan Newman are working to improve the city's economic future—and their own. Their recession-busting kryptonite? Bagels.

Our road dollars

Our road dollars are being hijacked by the Detroit International Bridge co. with their duty free fuel concession. Anderson never takes into account the revenue generated from the duty free fuel sales. Lets do that math.
