Park West CARES
On July 23, Park West Gallery kicked off its Park West CARES initiative, our summer clothing and merchandise donation program to benefit community organizations in southeast Michigan. Hundreds of items have already been given to HAVEN of Oakland County, Detroit Rescue Mission Ministries, and Capuchin Soup Kitchen.

“This initiative is a great opportunity to give back to our local community, and continues our long history of supporting non-profits that provide hands-on help to people in need,” said Albert Scaglione, CEO of Park West Gallery. “Since these are all items that can provide basic needs or improve someone’s quality of life, we are extending this support to a variety of organizations that can immediately provide assistance to others.”

Additional donations are scheduled throughout the summer at local organizations including Grace Centers of Hope, Covenant House and Vista Maria. READ MORE >>
