Thank you so much to Christopher and his mom Chicky for donating 12 bottles of formula to our BD Morningside Hub. Formula and baby food are always a high priority on our needs wish list. We are grateful to be able to share these resources with our families and make sure they have what they need to raise healthy babies. Thanks again to Christopher and Chicky for their generosity and support!
Watching her grow along with our BD Morningside hub, Rakisha Odom is the epitome of what it is to be a true leader. Hear her describe the magic of and how she's been hooked on all that our community hubs have to offer children and families. Learn more about Rakisha, and our work by watching this highlight and visit to find out how you too can .
We want to give a huge shout out to Joshua Arntson, Motor City Grounds Crew, and the Morningside Community Organization Board who partnered this with us this Thanksgiving to provide meals to our Brilliant Detroit families in the BD Morningside community.

Together we were able to feed nearly 50 families in need. Volunteers from the board and staff from the Grounds Crew teamed up to pack, distribute and deliver meals to families who did not have transportation and seniors who were unable to get out of their homes or prepare meals.

Brilliant Detroit is grateful to have such awesome partners in this work. Both the Motor City Grounds Crew and the Morningside Board have supported the Morningside BD site since the beginning.
