Chartreuse, Popular Detroit Restaurant Donates to HIGH Program Students

April 12, 2016


In an effort to help over 125 students who apply to Wayne State University’s HIGH Program every year, Chartreuse has recently donated gift cards to provide these needy students with a hot meal.


The HIGH Program (Helping Individuals Go Higher), founded by First Lady Jacqueline Wilson in 2013, is dedicated to helping homeless or insecurely housed students, working hard for a successful life, beat the odds and graduate with a degree from the university. Regardless of the financial and emotional hardships they may face, students supported by the HIGH Program are determined to graduate and be productive members of society- and Chartreuse is helping them to do just that!


Named 2016 Detroit Free Press and Metro Detroit Chevy Dealers Restaurant of the Year, Chartreuse’s motto “We like being in a good mood, and being around other people that are in a good mood” is supported through the example of their philanthropy. Their generous donation is making a positive impact on the lives of WSU students who need the support of their Detroit community in order to succeed.


If you are a local restaurant or business and would like to be featured on our website, please contact the WSU HIGH Program at (313) 577-9933, or email us at WSUHighProgram@wayne.edu to make a donation!
