Evergreen Market Helping Families in Need

Evergreen Market is giving away FREE meat and chicken to any families in need. The market is located right down the street from River Oaks Elementary.

Anyone can walk into the store and take anything that they may need from the meat section that’s marked with a plain white sticker. They can then take the items to the register and have them bagged.

Detroit Public TV Programming for Kids

Starting MondayMarch 30, Detroit Public TV is responding to the learning needs of families with children at home as a result of Michigan schools being closed because of the COVID-19 crisis by adjusting its entire daytime programming schedule.

From 7am until 6pm Monday through Friday, DPTV will offer blocks of programming geared to specific age groups – early childhoodmiddle school and high school – on its main broadcast channel (56.1), as part of a collaboration with Michigan’s public television stations and the national PBS system.

DPTV’s schedule during those hours will be filled with PBS programming that aligns to curriculum goals, with online learning activities associated with each show. 

The new daytime schedule draws on many popular PBS programs, like “Masterpiece,” “NOVA,” “American Experience,” and recent specials, we know our adult viewers who also find themselves at home will find it appealing.

While Michigan schools are closed this school year, weekday programming will be as follows:

  • 7am to 9am — Current PBS KIDS programming (Ages 2-8 years old)
  • 9am to 1pm — Grades 4th-8th
  • 1pm to 6pm — Grades 9th-12th

Parents and caregivers seeking traditional PBS KIDS programming after 9am will find it on the 24/7 Detroit PBS KIDS Channel (56.2). Programming will go back to our original schedule once the need is over.

In this challenging time, Detroit Public TV remains committed to creating content and resources that lead to positive outcomes for all in our community.
