Michigan’s Thanksgiving Parade


This grant will support the Thanksgiving Parade Float Design Contest, which highlights The Skillman Foundation’s work to provide exceptional learning and development opportunities for Detroit students. The float is featured prominently in the America’s Thanksgiving Day Parade and is annually unveiled via a promotional press conference held at the Parade Company studio preceding the parade.
