S.A.Y. Detroit Play Center
S.A.Y. Detroit Charities was founded by Mitch Albom and is aimed at improving the lives of the neediest citizens, through shelter, food, medical care, volunteer efforts and education. It serves as the umbrella for ongoing major projects including S.A.Y. Detroit Play Center and S.A.Y Detroit Family Health Clinic. One of S.A.Y. Play's goals is to increase academic performance, attendance and graduation rates by offering sports and music as reward for study.
The collaboration of S.A.Y. Play and Building Better Men (BBM) has given access to this unique facility to the young men of BBM. In turn, Odis Bellinger, director of BBM, has recruited more and more boys to the S.A.Y. Play program through his long-standing commitment to the communities surrounding S.A.Y. Play.
