Give to matrix
Matrix has been supporting communities in Detroit for over a hundred years and we do not run from adversity, but meet it head-on by providing resources, support, and a place to feel safe for anyone who needs it.
Many of our clients are requesting items that we wished we had the means to provide. For the time being, many of our staff have been giving requested items from their own personal supply. We are desperately seeking requested items such as soaps, toothpaste, toothbrushes, hand sanitizers, wipes, disinfecting spray, cleaning supplies, paper towel, tissue, and other essentials. As well as, diapers, art supplies, outdoor play items like chalk and bubbles, cereal, thermometers, nebulizers, and more.
To give a monetary donation to help us be able to purchase these items in bulk, to continue to help our clients during this difficult time and to ensure Matrix is able to continue to meet the needs of the community.
