Helping Hands: A Detroit News holiday tradition

For 26 years, The Detroit News has told the stories of Michiganians in need around the holidays and invited readers to adopt them. Its been a warm, generous, uplifting, and in some cases life-changing program.

A good non-profit, though, can peel a $20 bill in half and spend it twice. It doesnt just get bang for a buck, it gets a whole fireworks show. So this holiday season, well shine a light on some outstanding agencies who help those in need.
