A Time To Help was established in 1997 to galvanize Detroit volunteerism on a regular basis.
Under the umbrella of Mitch Albom’s S.A.Y Detroit charity, A Time to Help has now staged more than 150 monthly projects, ranging from building houses, delivering meals, beautifying city streets, running adoption fairs, repairing homeless shelters, packing food, and hosting an annual Christmas party to a shelter for battered women.
Albom and radio co-host Ken Brown lead each monthly project. Volunteers can sign up for one, two or all projects. There are no requirements, except that, for most events, volunteers should be at least 18 years of age. Older teenagers can come if accompanied by at least one adult supervisor for every four of them.

Dear Wonderful A Time to Help Volunteers:
To those of you who joined us, we’d like to thank you so much for volunteering last Saturday (July 9) for our July project at The Detroit Zoo. The staff was overwhelmingly grateful for our hard work clearing out several beds that were overrun with weeds.
Best news: The Zoo would like us to return next year!
A reminder that there is no project slated for August; we’ll resume again in September. Please circle the date – Sept. 17 – on your calendar. We’ll announce the project location in the coming weeks.
Happy Summer! And thanks again for all you do!
