On Saturday, May 22, seven Grosse Pointe Rotarians joined with ten Grosse Pointe Memorial Church members to clean up the grounds of The Second Mile Center of Detroit, founded in 2006 by Ruth Azar, wife of GP Rotary member Scott Matthews.  The Second Mile Center of Detroit provides services and develops partnerships to empower and strengthen people who live in Detroit’s 48205 zip code, considered to be the most dangerous in Detroit due to gang activity.  Ruth provides support services through charitable and educational means without discrimination based on race, color, national or ethnic origin – services like free after school programs, food pantry twice a week, free clothing and baby supplies, free community dinners, and no cost mobile health fair.
