Gale Partners with Heroes’ Alliance to Empower Learning in Haiti

| By Anika Smith, director of programs, Heroes’ Alliance, Inc. |

Heroes’ Alliance is a non-profit organization headquartered in Detroit, MI with a focus on empowering residents of urban areas. We see education as the main driver of both individual and collective empowerment. In 2010, we launched our first educational initiative focused on literacy, recognizing that literacy is the lynchpin for understanding all disciplines. We have since that time expanded our educational platforms to include Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) while continuing to value and promote literacy as a foundational aspect of all learning.

In 2010, Heroes’ Alliance partnered with Gale on our 5th Annual Parental Boot-Camp—a back to school rally that provides resources for both parent and child in preparation for the upcoming school year. Gale donated 500 backpacks to be stuffed with school supplies and given away to children in the community.  Since 2010, Gale has donated over 2,500 backpacks toward this endeavor. Gale has also supported Heroes’ Alliance with resource materials for our literacy initiative and laptops that we provided to recent high school graduates for upcoming college coursework. This partnership has been a foundational means to resource Detroit students with supplies and materials necessary for their continued educational success.
