With thanks to donations from folks like you, collected through the A Hole in the Roof Foundation and the charity film premiere of Have a Little Faith, I Am My Brother’s Keeper Chuch replaced more than 100 windows.

A huge thanks to all who helped contribute and especially, Hansons Windows, which did an awesome job working through the holiday week (thank you, Chris, for overseeing the effort).

The entire Detroit Muscle Crew— seventeen men ready to work—will return to continue the repairs begun nearly a year ago.
