Ongoing Learning Experiences – Detroit Community-Engaged Research Program

Ongoing Learning Experiences

I have learned so much about Detroit through my internship at Friends of Parkside! To start, I learned how much this organization gives back to the community in terms of resources and virtual discussions. Especially during this quarantine time, many people aren’t leaving their homes and they heavily depend on the donations and contributions this organization provides to them. Moreover, many people are senior citizens and given them food boxes or other crucial items is allowing them to have everything they need to get through this period. The food box distribution was especially beneficial to the senior citizens and when I received the opportunity to get feedback from them, several said how happy they were to have these foods and necessities available to them.
