MLive reported that the Detroit efforts will be made possible thanks to a $100,000 grant from the DTE Energy Foundation.
The organization is a chapter of 826 National, founded by author David Eggers at 826 Valencia St. in San Francisco. The original location has a pirate-themed storefront and has inspired chapters in New York City, Los Angeles, and Chicago among other locations.
Students participating in 826Michigan programs have produced plays and collaborated on books and poetry collections. The organization also rocks out every winter as the Mittenfest music festival raises thousands of dollars for programming.
