Detroit, MI. - March 20, 2012 - For the seventh year in a row College Hunks Hauling Junk will be hosting an Art Supply Drive and Detroit Tigers Opening Day Tailgate on April 8th, to benefit Art Road Nonprofit. The nonprofit organization is Bringing Art Class Back to Schools that lack art in their curriculum in Detroit schools.  College Hunks Hauling Junk and Moving Truck will be parked at The Detroit Opera House Parking Lot in Detroit from 10 a.m. to 1:00pm and will be accepting all art supply donations or cash donations.  Art Road and College Hunks Hauling Junk and Moving encourages Tigers Fans to join us for the tailgate and bring art supplies and help us fill entire truck.  Art supplies such as glue sticks, watercolors, markers, black and white construction paper, children's scissors, and more.

"Last year we collected and delivered 6 large bins of school supplies for Art Road Nonprofit," said Dan Ryan, owner of College Hunks Hauling Junk. "We want to fill the entire truck this year!  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 Nonprofit."
