The Edison Coat Drive was a success! Grandmont Community Youth and Education Chairperson Carla White-Smith partnered with Detroit Edison School, Ms. Sims and Kimberly Byers from Wayne County Department of Health and Human Services to purchase coats, uniform pants, gloves, and hats. The faculty, staff, and students were very grateful for the donations. Grandmont Youth and Education is looking forward to continued partnership with Detroit Edison School for other community projects.
