Art Supply donations being accepted on behalf of Art Road on Thursday, April 5 at the corner of Gratiot and Brush in Detroit

For the second year in a row College Hunks Hauling Junk will be hosting an Art Supply Drive and Tiger's Tailgate on Tiger's Opening Day, April 5th, to benefit Art Road Nonprofit. The nonprofit organization is bringing art class back to schools that lack art in their curriculum throughout Southeastern Michigan. Trucks will be parked at the corner of Gratiot and Brush in Detroit from 9:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and will be accepting all art supply donations. Art Road and College Hunks Hauling Junk encourages Tigers Fans to drop off art supplies and help us fill entire truck.

"I am so excited to be able to help collect and deliver school supplies for Art Road Non Profit," said Dan Ryan, owner of College Hunks Hauling Junk. "I believe every child should have art in their life. Owning a business allows one to bring awareness to worthwhile charities, and we at College Hunks Hauling Junk are thrilled to be associated with a great group like Art Road Non Profit."

"Thanks to Dan Ryan and College Hunks Hauling Junk for filling an entire truck with art supplies last year!" said Carol Hofgartner, founder of Art Road Nonprofit. "Children's scissors, construction paper and glue sticks were just a few of the great items we collected last year. With their support and the support of business owners like Dan, we can continue to bring art class back to schools."
