Filthy Cares, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded by Filthy Rockwell. Filthy Rockwell is a Grammy nominated multi-Platinum music producer and ASCAP song writer from the east side of Detroit. The nonprofit organization focuses on empowering future generations through mentoring youth through history, music, art and entrepreneurship. We use musical events and musical features to bring the community together for a specific purpose such as a toy drive, funding for a veteran housing project, art exhibition and the like.
Adopt-A-Block is an annual campaign organized and founded by Filthy Rockwell. Filthy Rockwell grew up on the east side of Detroit. As a child, there were times when he did not receive Christmas gifts. So he would sit and look outside hoping that a stranger would just so happen to knock on his door with hands full of Christmas gifts for him to open. So we turned what was once a dream into a reality. For three years straight, we have completed toy drives during the holiday season, individually wrap brand new toys and knock on the doors of selected neighborhoods each year. Alongside the individually wrapped Christmas gifts, we give away canned goods and dried foods for the families. Last year, we were donated two 65" televisions and gave them away to the households with the most children inside on Christmas Day.
Filthy Cares had the opportunity to collaborate with Riverside Marina, a marina in the City of Detroit near Jefferson Avenue. Riverside Marina allowing the youth to do a boat ride, explore the grounds, watch the transport of a boat from the water to storage, recover a boat that was sinking, speak with a captain or a large vessel boat and go swimming. It was definitely a day to remember.
The date is approaching fast and we’re making preparations. Don’t miss out!
