Kid Rock Donates to Northwest Autism Center And Second Harvest Food Bank
On the final stop of the 12 city “CARE” tour Kid Rock announced the local recipients of a portion of the more than $400,000 dollars to be donated. Kid Rock has assembled a team of Detroit titans to show support for other cities in need, and to show that Detroit, while experiencing its own difficulties still has the power to unite to help others around the country. Kid Rock, in association with this powerhouse group of local Detroit business people, will donate money to local charities, causes and individuals via the Kid Rock Foundation, all along every stop of his underplay club tour. Radio station partners in each tour market will help determine those individuals and organizations in need.
