Established by Greek immigrants in the 1880’s, historic Greektown continues to beat as the heart of a thriving entertainment center. The Society’s goals include actively pursuing and creating opportunity to ensure the vitality and well-being of the area. The Society facilitates cooperative strategies to support the existing business and creates a healthy climate for economic growth and development. These goals led to GPS’ involvement in the Detroit Donates program, where they play a key role in the initial development and implementation of the program.
