The University of Michigan, on behalf of Matrix Human Services, is seeking donations to support Matrix Head Start families with young children.

In an effort to ensure parents have access to a sufficient quantity of diapers and to support parents transporting small children to Head Start every day, we are collecting diapers and bus ticket donations to help support these low income families. Donations will be accepted during the entire month of September!



You may donate diapers in any size and bus tickets in any denomination. Every little bit helps! Matrix Human Services, a 109 year old Detroit non-profit organization, runs the largest Head Start program in the city of Detroit. Serving more than 1,900 children and their families each day, Matrix Head Start makes a huge impact in thousands of lives. Matrix is focused on providing a hand-up not just a hand out, you can help!
