A Time To Help was established in 1997 as a means of galvanizing the people of Detroit to volunteer on a regular basis. A Time To Help has staged more than 100 monthly projects ranging from building houses, delivering meals, beautifying city streets, running adoption fairs, repairing homeless shelters, packing food, and hosting an annual Christmas party to a shelter for battered women.
Albom and radio co-host Ken Brown lead each project and try to use the group as a catalyst to increase volunteerism Volunteers should be at least 18 years old, although 16 and 17 year old youth may come if accompanied by one adult supervisor for every four youths.

Upcoming "A Time to Help" Event:
SAY DETROIT Annual Christmas Party at Denby Center
Adopting homeless children and their parents living in shelters for one day is one of Time to Help’s most cherished activities. The residents of the shelters are enormously touched by the generosity of volunteers and sponsors. Having a special party in their honor with tons of needed gifts, food, arts and crafts, games, Santa, and more is heart-warming for both residents and volunteers.
