Mopar and United Way have come together as part of a company-wide initiative to work with the Southeastern Michigan Indians Inc. It took 75 volunteers, around 55 gallons of paint, and more than 1,000 articles of clothing, but they got the job done.
The project was to repaint the organizations cultural center and to sponsor a “Dress for Success” clothing drive. What that would do is provide those that need it with professional attire. The Southeastern Michigan Indians Inc provides services to Native Americans and Macomb County residents in Michigan. The center’s pink and blue exterior was fading fast and is now coated with a beige base and burgundy stripe.
There’s meaning behind that choice of color Sue Franklin, the executive director of SEMII explains, “The burgundy brand represents medicine and healing. The beige color connects the building to the earth.”
Center Line Mayor Dave Hanselman had high praise for the work effort. “The building looks wonderful, the people from Mopar have enhanced the city through their work with SEMII.”
