Thornton & Grooms, a family owned and operated business since 1937, continues to help and give back to the community through their Hearts & Heroes Award, providing aid to local charitable groups and organizations. The giving continues with this month’s Hearts & Heroes recipient, Boys Hope Girls Hope of Detroit.
Boys Hope Girls Hope believes in children and their ability to overcome challenging circumstances. With high school dropouts costing the economy $260 Billion each year, helped by the fact that 20% of American children age seven or younger live below the poverty line (6x more likely to drop out), it’s obvious that those less fortunate need to realize their importance and what they can accomplish.
Academic, financial, and spiritual support through college is all part of the program at Boys Hope Girls Hope. By providing children with arms-around care, safe homes and environments, a first-class education and opportunities to learn more about themselves and the world, Boys Hope Girls Hope empowers children to realize the potential that is within them.
“At Thornton & Grooms we set high standards and we admire how Boys Hope Girls Hope encourages the same with their scholars by providing everything they will need to meet those standards. In doing so, we’re making our communities, and our world, a better place,” said Thornton & Grooms VP, Mike Bergstrom.
