Darren Helm teams up with Humble Design to raise funds for furnishing homes of the previously homeless

Red Wings forward Darren Helm is teaming up with Humble Design, a non-profit agency that helps people exiting domestic violence shelters and homeless shelters furnish their places of residence, to hold a “Virtual 5K” to raise funds for the organization. Here’s a press release regarding Helm’s involvement with the charity

Local Red Wings Player Darren Helm and his family want to share their support for a local nonprofit, Humble Design.

Several years ago the Detroit Red Wings and the Lady Wings, teamed up to completely furnish the home of the Finleys, who had been staying in a homeless shelter until they could transition to permanent housing. After learning that the Finleys had nothing but an air mattress, a few camp chairs, and not much else, they volunteered to work for a day putting together all the things the Humble Design team had curated from their warehouse.

It was an unforgettable experience for Darren and his wife, Devon. When they heard that Humble Design was hosting a Virtual 5K August 31-September 7, they wanted to help. Darren told us, “It’s important to me, my wife, and our kids that we do what we can during this time.”

The press release continues, and Humble Design‘s YouTube channel posted a short video in which Helm’s family promotes the Virtual 5K:
