Veterans Service Project

On September 11, the University of Detroit Mercy School of Law partnered with the Michigan Veterans Foundation (MVF) and the Ford Volunteer Corps to create a Warrior Garden at MVF in Detroit to feed homeless veterans.

Volunteers from the three organizations constructed 12 raised garden beds and stained seven park benches for the new community healing garden, which will provide our local veterans with fresh, organic produce. Planting will take place in the spring at MVF's new location on Jefferson Avenue, and upon harvest the yield will be split in half between MVF and UDM Law. MVF will use the produce to help underwrite the cost of serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner to 130 veterans, 365 days a year. In addition to 100 veterans who reside at MVF's transitional housing facility, MVF feeds veterans who regularly walk-in for meals. UDM Law will sell its half of the yield at the School, and all proceeds will be used for upkeep of the Warrior Garden.

Thank you to those who helped with our Accelerated Service Project with Ford Motor Company in support of our local veterans at Michigan Veterans Foundation. Photo Gallery >>
