      Ford Piquette Avenue Plant Toy Drive

      Ford Piquette Avenue Plant, the original factory owned and built by the Ford Motor Company, will be hosting a toy drive to benefit families in Brilliant Detroit neighborhoods. The museum and education center will be accepting donations of new toys beginning now through the end of February 2020.

      Brilliant Detroit’s wish list includes a wide variety of gifts in health, literacy and family support categories, including skateboards and sports equipment, art sets and Leap Frog books and snow suits and winter boots. All items must be new and in original packaging. Patrons who donate new toys in their original packaging will receive $1 off adult, senior and student ticket admissions to the museum.

      Established in 2015, Brilliant Detroit offers a radically new approach to kindergarten readiness and a unique delivery model for early childhood development by using underutilized housing stock to create early child and family centers in neighborhoods. Brilliant Detroit homes – complete with signature orange-colored front doors – provide holistic services for children ages 0-8 predicated on evidence-based programs around health, education and family support. In each location, neighbors come together for fellowship, activities and learning to assure school readiness and stabilize families.
