Holiday Shop a Big Success!

A great big Thank You! goes out to our wonderful donors for supporting our GED students through this year's successful Holiday Shop on December 18th. Pictured here on the right is Maria, an MEP student who passed the GED one week ago and hence was the first to "shop" at the holiday event.  The event featured vital support from DTE Energy (set-up) and Ford Motor ($5000 donation and on-site gift wrapping, grocery bagging and more!).  Highlight of the event was beautiful song stylings by Cynthia, one of our students, along with her daughter, Kiko.  Thank you to Trinity Health, Tappers Jewelry and Fine Gifts, Belfor, St. Paul of the Woods (Grosse Pointe), St. Anne's Parish (Warren), Holy Name Parish (Birmingham), Mercy High School, University of Detroit Mercy alumni, Rehmann Robson, and many generous individual donors for providing this year's shop contents.

"Education is an opportunity and can be transformational for our most vulnerable communities; especially those, like us, working tirelessly in search of the American Dream. Programs like Mercy Education Project have successfully removed those barriers for many and have educated our women and girls and is transforming their lives."

"….Literacy is a fundamental right and an essential building block for a productive life. Increasing adult literacy also ensures more parents can be engaged in their children’s education, ,making this a cause  critical to helping families break the cycle of poverty. Thank you to Mercy Education Project for their tireless efforts to ensure everyone has an opportunity to learn to read. Together, I know we are making a difference.”
