As in years past, this week the Adamo Group prepared its annual donation of toys for the Detroit and Macomb county Toys for Tots program.
Toys for Tots, a 70-year national charitable program run by the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve, provides happiness and hope to disadvantaged children during each Christmas holiday season. The toys, books and other gifts collected and distributed by the Marines offer these children recognition, confidence and a positive memory for a lifetime. It is such experiences that help children become responsible citizens and caring members of their community. Last year the Marine Corps fulfilled the holiday hopes and dreams of 7 million less fortunate children in 792 communities nationwide. Since 1947 over 251 million children have been assisted.

Adamo Group began demolition yesterday at a Lafayette Park building near downtown Detroit. The building, once known as Shapiro Hall, was a former location for Wayne State University’s pharmacy program. The site has been previously vacant for years. The location will be redeveloped into a new 374 unit residential property. The 8 story tower will be removed, making room for the $108 million residential development which will feature 60 condominiums and 314 rental properties. Demolition is expected to last until late Spring. The new Lafayette West Development is set to open by late 2020. As a Detroit Headquartered business Adamo is proud to be a part of what will be a major milestone in the city’s continued revitalization.
