Go ahead–get that Italian sausage, and wash it down with a beer. It's for a good cause.
Dearborn’s annual Homecoming festival runs through Aug. 5 at Ford Field Park, and more than 30 nonprofit groups participate in Homecoming, with more than 20 involved directly in fundraising.
In fact, all the food and beverage booths outside of the carnival area are exclusively organized and staffed by Dearborn-based nonprofit groups, and the money raised in the booths goes back to the community through their worthwhile causes.
Combined, these groups raise about $70,000 each year for the Dearborn community and beyond.
Here's a list of the Dearborn-based nonprofit groups involved in Homecoming. Find your favorites, then stop by to support them this weekend!
