Moross Greenway receives grant

November 29, 2012
The Moross Greenway Project got a significant boost this week from St. John Providence Health System toward the project’s plan to reforest and re-landscape seven islands on Moross Road, from the I-94 service drive to St. John Hospital and Medical Center. St. John Providence Health System pledged $250,000, during a five-year period, toward the project’s goal of $600,000.

“St. John Providence Health System has been a real partner in our effort to revitalize this major Eastside thoroughfare,” said Sheila O’Hara, president of the Moross Greenway. “Thanks to support from St. John Providence, we are well on our way to continuing and complimenting the Moross Road beautification efforts initiated by St. John Hospital across from its main campus.”

“St. John Providence is proud to partner with the Moross Greenway Project on their vision to create a welcoming environment for residents and visitors,” said Patricia Maryland, president and CEO, St. John Providence Health System.

The Moross Greenway Project, a 501(c)(3) organization, is a collaborative effort with volunteers partners from Detroit, communities bordering Moross, churches, garden clubs and civic, industrial and commercial organizations. The project involves planting trees, shrubs and perennials to provide a sustainable landscape including native plants and an irrigation system. The first phase of the project’s effort was launched in June 2011 with the planting of 191 trees along Moross in partnership with The Greening of Detroit.

A tax-deductible contribution can be made at morossgreenway.org, or by sending a check to Greening of Detroit, 155 West Congress, Suite 200, Detroit, MI 48226.
