Local business owner caters coffee, donuts to DPD
‘Our small way of saying thanks’
DETROIT — Local business owner H. Julian Hill showed his appreciation for the Detroit Police Department by providing them coffee, donuts and other refreshments July 19 at the Central District on Woodward and E. Grand Blvd.
“This is a small but sincere gesture to show appreciation to our men and women in blue,” said Hill, owner of Celebrity Car Wash and Detail on Woodward, a few blocks from the Central District. “All we hear about is what’s wrong and how much they are losing. Well, they need to know they have our respect and support.”
Hill, who received support from other neighboring businesses, says there is no special motivation.
“I am just doing something because I believe they need to know that people care about them and what they are doing every day.”
He said he hopes others will follow with their acts of kindness if they see someone taking the lead.
