The needs of the metro Detroit community are great -- and while our Foundation is in its infancy, The Smith Family strives to make the biggest impact possible with an emphasis on health and education – the underpinnings of any functional community. The Ascension St. John Hospital Neonatal Intensive Care Unit is among our most significant contributions. This Unit has filled a need for meeting the critical healthcare requirements for caring for premature infants and, importantly, their parents and family members.
We are also very proud to have supported Detroit’s first youth soccer league with the Detroit Youth Lacrosse organization, which is bringing recreational lacrosse to young people who have never experienced the sport. Because our family, like so many others, has been impacted by cancer The Smith Family also actively supports cancer research and treatment.
