Well before dawn, Reclaim Detroit lost its entire warehouse, mill shop, and showroom - where 12 people are employed in the largest deconstruction venture in Detroit - to a devastating fire. What will remain when the smoke clears will be ashes... and our fighting spirit.

Support Our Recovery
We are accepting monetary donations through our Crowdrise campaign, but other forms of support would be greatly appreciated if available.
"The transition from the old warehouse to this new one is pretty hard, pretty difficult. But you know, you still have a job that needs to be done, an order that needs to be filled.
I feel like it’s just a minor setback for a major comeback. We’ll get through it, but we do need help."
STILL HARD AT WORK...
Currently, we are temporarily housed at a small, unheated warehouse on Holden Street in Detroit. We are hoping to move to a more permanent location soon, but will need assistance to do so.
Our staff and crew have been overwhelmed by the love and support that has poured in and are more determined than ever to Reclaim Detroit.
OUR WISH LIST
We have been reminded by the works of beauty we create. We are eager to start deconstructing, rebuilding our inventory, and manufacturing new butcher blocks, tables, charcuterie boards and more. But we need tools and equipment to get started.
If anyone has something on this list or another hand tool or piece of equipment you could loan or donate to support our work, please let us know or contact Susan Dundon: firstname.lastname@example.org
Chop or mitre saw
Basic hand tools
Crow bar / flat bar
It comes from the type of dedication we bring and no matter what happens, we gotta keep going. There’s always going to be obstacles.
