1,000 Turkeys, 10,000 Smiles 2017

Heroes represent the best of ourselves, respecting that we are human beings. A hero can be anyone from Gandhi to your classroom teacher, anyone who can show courage when faced with a problem. A hero is someone who is willing to help others in his or her best capacity. –Ricky Martin

We did it again!  Higher Hopes Heroes successfully distributed 1,000 complete and nutritious Thanksgiving Dinner Meals kits on Monday, November 20th & there were somewhere between 10,000 & 12,000 full bellies and surely, more than 12,000 smiles in Detroit on Thanksgiving because of Higher Hopes! Heroes this year!
