Devils on Ice,
Angels for Charity
In existence since 1974, the Grosse Pointe Old Devils Charity continues to strive to expand its programs and offerings to the community. This year we have pledged to fund 20 youth skaters through the East Side Hockey organization. These are kids who would otherwise not have a chance to be part of a team, build character through athletics, or learn how to play the great sport of hockey. We will also continue to support the Center for Success, a free afterschool program that seeks to raise students reading scores up to grade level with individualized lessons and reading mentors. The Center for Success currently supports 50 students and engages over 50 mentors weekly. Finally, the GPOD will remain committed to supporting the Detroit Swims program at the Boll Family YMCA. Our funding allows 100 students to participate and learn water safety skills, as well as build confidence.
