The Jalen Rose Leadership Academy in Detoit was chosen as recipient of a $100,000 donation. After the Varsity basketball game, all players and staff were invited to the Applebee’s in Detroit for dinner. As a surprise, the restaurant — owned by TEAM Schostak Family Restaurants — changed up the decor in the Jalen Rose “corner,” with a collage of team pictures which the players were allowed to autograph.
In June 2022, Schostak Brothers & Company announced that they will mark their 100th anniversary with a
community giving campaign to distribute $1 million across impactful Detroit-based nonprofit organizations.
Selected from a range of nonprofit sectors including neighborhoods, workforce development, education,
health and entrepreneurship, the goal of the initiative was to select organizations based on their work in
Detroit, the city where the company was founded a century ago.
The gift recipients have been chosen through an extensive selection process involving Schostak employees,
with the intent to help the charities complete a current project or start a new phase while shining a light on
each organization’s efforts to reach other potential donors.
