HAPPENING ACROSS CITY GOVERNMENT 
City expands meal distribution at Recreation Centers
Many of Detroit’s children rely on their schools to provide daily meals. Since schools closed 2 weeks ago, the City of Detroit and its Dept. of Recreation has provided nearly 30,000 meals to Detroit children.
 
Starting Monday, we’re adding 3 additional recreation centers to our curbside food distribution program, and increasing the number of meals we’re serving to ensure we’re meeting the need in our community.
 
Meal pick-up will be provided at the following City Recreation Centers (MON-FRI 8:30-1:30PM):
  • Adams Butzel Recreation Center, 10500 Lyndon
  • Farwell Recreation Center, 2711 E. Outer Drive
  • Kemeny Recreation Center, 2260 S. Fort Street
  • Patton Recreation Center, 2301 Woodmere starting March 30
Meals pick up will be provided at the following City recreation centers (TUES, WEDS, FRI 8:30-1:30PM):
  • Crowell Recreation Center, 16630 Lahser 
  • Lasky Recreation Center, 13200 Fenelon
 
This move will allow the City of Detroit to serve nearly 40,000 meals to Detroit children every week.  You can find a complete listing of places where Detroit children, families, and seniors can pick up meals and groceries on the City’s website at www.detroitmi.gov/food.
***Drive Up COVID-19 testing is now available, a doctor’s prescription is requited.***
Coalition of City, 3 Counties, 3 Health Systems Open Regional Drive Up COVID-19 testing site
  • Testing will begin Friday at Joe Dumars Field House at Michigan State Fairgrounds
  • Site will have capacity to conduct 400 tests per day, 14,400 over six-week period
  • Appointments to be taken starting today, testing begins Friday
  • Doctor’s prescription required to be tested
Four hundred people per day will be able to start getting tested on Friday for COVID-19 at a new drive up testing center thanks to a unique coalition of Southeastern Michigan governments and health care systems.
Testing will be done Monday-Saturday, 7 AM – 6 PM at the State Fairgrounds in Detroit, starting this Friday. The samples will be taken by staff of the three health care systems from residents who will remain their cars at the Drive Through site. The tests of the samples will be run by Bioreference Labs of New Jersey under a contract with the City of Detroit to process up to 500 samples a day for the next 6 weeks.
Doctors Order and Appointment Needed for Tests – Quicken Loans Running Call Center
In order to be tested, patients need to first get a doctor’s order and then either the doctor or the patient can call 313-230-0505 to schedule the Drive Through appointment. Dan Gilbert has donated the call center operations of Quicken Loans and Rock Connections to handle the appointments, which can be made from 9AM until 7 PM, seven days a week.
How the CCCN Drive-thru testing site will work
  • Between March 27 and May 8, the site will perform 14,400 tests, which will be conducted by appointment only, based on referrals from doctors.
  • During this six-week period, the site will operate from 7 AM until 6 PM Monday thru Saturday starting Friday, March 27. It will operate until May 8.
  • The entrance will be off of W. State Fair.
Who can go to the CCCN drive thru testing site?
  • Only individuals who have received a testing order from their physician and scheduled an appointment with the CCCN call center can get tested.
  • COVID-19 testing will be available to any resident of the tri-county region (Wayne, Oakland, and Macomb County)
  • Individuals who do not have an appointment and a physician order will not be tested.
There are two ways a person can be scheduled for an appointment:
    1. A physician schedules an appointment for a patient and calls in a prescription to the call center, or,
    2. An individual must receive a written prescription from a physician, schedule an appointment with the call center, and bring their prescription to the testing location.
How do I schedule an appointment with the CCCN call center?
  • Call the CCCN call center at 313-230-0505 to schedule your drive-thru testing appointment. Appointments are scheduled up to one week in advance.
  • The call center is open Monday through Sunday 9am – 7pm.
  • The appointment scheduling process for physicians includes:
  1. Patient arrives at their doctor’s office presenting COVID-19 symptoms.
  2. Doctor evaluates patient for COVID-19 and determines whether the patient should receive testing.
  3. If the doctor determines that COVID-19 testing is needed, the doctor writes a prescription for the test.
  4. While the patient is still present, the doctor’s office calls the CCCN call center with the prescription information and schedules an appointment for the patient at the drive thru.
  5. The doctor’s office provides the patient with their drive-thru appointment date, time, and location and instructs them to bring their state issued or another form of valid ID.
  • The appointment scheduling process for an individual includes:
  1. Patient arrives at their doctor’s office presenting COVID-19 symptoms.
  2. Doctor evaluates patient for COVID-19 and determines whether the patient should receive testing.
  3. If the doctor determines that COVID-19 testing is needed, the doctor writes a prescription for the test.

#motownmom: Making Foam Soap on a budget #14anhr #frugaldiva #motownmoxiemom

I’ve just fallen in love with foam soap in my bathroom and I have an old Caress foam soap bottle.

I was pretty tired of paying CVS an arm and a leg for a refill on this soap and now that I have this video and of course I have Dr. Bronner’s soap in my house, I’m going to do this from now on.

I also added a little peppermint oil drops and it’s just heavenly.

Let me know if you’ve tried this as well or what do you use? Do you even like foam soap?

Detroit’s Eastside:
 Moving Ahead
EASTSIDE COMMUNITY NETWORK
313 571 – 2800
The Eastside Community Network (ECN) is “people driven” and
“growth determined.”  Since 1990, it has motivated and initiated positive transformation of Detroit’s east side.  As Educational Arts Society’s COO Dr. Mamie Smith listened to the voice of ECN Director  of Community Organizing and Planning Angela Wilson, she heard goal direction, confidence, self-reliance and we are proud of the work we are doing, but we know…the job is not done.
Walking around the website of ECN, one sees positive signs of the organization’s purpose: positive change in neighborhoods, engagement of residents, leadership development, and youth attraction.  It advocates “sustainable development” through:
  • Quality Education
  • Diversity Inclusion
  • Community Connectivity
  • Re-Purposing Vacant Land
  • Healthy Families
Smith was motivated to attend the next Meeting!  ECN’s impact on the east side has been steady and recognizable.  They demonstrate that  “communities grow as people grow.”

Preparing for Emergencies at home #MotownMom #Urban

 

I can say first hand I know how it feels to have emergencies. When I was a single parent, I constantly stay on alert.

I can say always have a plan for everything. Fire, Crime, Shortages (especially when you’re broke but even pandemics come to mind), we went through a power outage when the east coat went out, Car stolen and more!

Per the CDC you should have and I’ve put my thoughts in

  • Paperwork – Collect and protect important documents and medical records https://www.cdc.gov/cpr/prepareyourhealth/Paperwork.htm
    • Keep all this in a bag. When I had my fire, the fact that I could just grab a bag with all our important papers was a life saver. I didn’t have to think. I just knew grab the big black bag in an area I could easily get to.
  • Personal Needs – Gather food, water, & medical supplies to last at least 72 hours
    https://www.cdc.gov/cpr/prepareyourhealth/PersonalNeeds.htm

    • For personal needs you need to make sure you have enough in your house for a month for each member
    • One case (24 bottles) of water per person in the house and also put an extra at the bottom of a deep freezer or if you don’t have one a regular freezer.
    • Check out our grocery list site to make sure your pantry is well stocked
  • Prescriptions – Prepare your prescription medications for an emergency
    https://www.cdc.gov/cpr/prepareyourhealth/Prescriptions.htm

    • Stock your prescriptions for at least three months if you can. I get migraines and I make sure I have at least two to three months of Excedrin with Caffeine  on hand.
  • Power sources – Prepare for power outages with backup power sources
    https://www.cdc.gov/cpr/prepareyourhealth/PowerSources.htm

    • Also think of power sources for CPap and any kind of breathing or other medical machines
    • Gas or Propane should be stored safely and ALWAYS keep you vehicle over a half tank of gas
    • Buy rechargeable power supplies and extra cords on hand.
  • Practical Skills – Learn Life Saving skills, such as CPR, to use until help arrives.
    https://www.cdc.gov/cpr/prepareyourhealth/PracticalSkills.htm

    • Try to learn a little gardening, home building skills, can food, fix cars, weapons handling and so forth as well.

Hey Moms, Are You Getting in the Way Helping Others to Help Yourself? #motownmom #selfcare

 

Getting out of our busy mode and into our heart occasionally, I’m certain that many of us would find at least one moment during our day where we could pause, reflect on a situation, and see something that we can do to make a difference in someone else’s life.

The pace of life and work has increased a lot and I daresay we don’t give as much thought as we could to the circumstances of other people’s lives. Sometimes, we’re so caught up in our own struggle that we don’t think we can even afford the time to “give” our time, suggestions, talents, to others. And yet, if we do, we are rewarded.

We are often times, throughout our lives, able to experience richness, synchronicity, and reward through small acts of generosity. This isn’t even about money, although sometimes the rewards will impact our financial status as well. And yet, we fail too often when we are so self-absorbed or consumed by our own situation thinking we’d give up too much by helping.

So, this is just a gentle reminder for all of us to pay attention to at least one “little thing” that will make a difference for someone else. Try to make it for someone you don’t know well or don’t know at all; family and friends are too easy and natural.
