HOSTED BY: Michelle “Shelbie” Kapas partnered with Elevate Detroit
My name is Michelle Kapas, a single mother of two who works full-time as a litigation support specialist with Pinkerton Consulting & Investigations, Inc. Throughout my life, helping others, in all aspects of life, has always been dear to my heart. Over the years, I have researched for the perfect opportunity to commence my own charity organization. Recently, I was blessed to partner with Mike Schmitt and John Lauzon c/o Elevate Detroit. Elevate Detroit holds a weekly community barbecue focused on feeding the homeless.
I successfully hosted my 1st Street Store – Detroit on Saturday, February 17, 2018. The turnout of attendees was incredible, which led us to distribute 90% of the donated clothing supply. My volunteer team went above and beyond by treating each shopper with love, kindness, and personal one-on-one attention.
I will be hosting my 2nd Street Store – Detroit located at the Elevate Detroit Park on 3000 4th Street in Detroit, Michigan. The Street Store is the Worlds first rent-free, premises-free, free pop-up clothing store for the homeless. I could not express my gratitude enough for the continued partnership with Elevate Detroit. The team we have developed will allow us to combine forces by creating a one-stop shop to both feed and clothe the homeless all while sharing the love of Jesus. The 2nd Street Store – Detroit event will be held on Saturday, March 31, 2018 with an Easter theme focusing on providing nicer clothing items for Easter.
