Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
People for Palmer Park is an organization of individuals committed to preservation, recreation and revitalization for Palmer Park Detroit...for the good of all.
PFPP was formed as a Michigan non-profit corporation in April 2011, and obtained its federal tax exemption, or charitable status under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code in November 2011. The organization has an elected Board of Directors comprised of area residents, approved bylaws, monthly board meetings held since the spring of 2011, and annual public meetings since March 2011. From the inception of the Board, there have been City official representatives from either the Recreation Department or General Services Department serving on the Board of Directors.

I have been a proud and active PFPP member since 2010, and part of the Marketing & Communications Committee for most of that time. As the only Ferndale resident on the Board, I am VERY committed to the success of this park and area. Connecting both sides of our 8 Mile adjacent communities is essential for the success of our entire region. I'm a graduate of the College for Creative Studies (BFA in Graphic Communication), former production artist for the Metro Times, and currently the Web Design Manager at BNP Media (Troy). I designed the People for Palmer Park logo, many of our merchandise items and also redesigned and maintain our website. I hope you'll give volunteering with our organization a try. It's a stellar group of very passionate people of ALL walks of life sharing the common goal of protecting and promoting this Detroit gem of an urban greenspace.
