Eastern Market Receives Major Contribution From Strategic Staffing Solutions

Detroit, MI – February 8, 2014 – Strategic Staffing Solutions (S3) has made a major contribution to Detroit’s Eastern Market making it the market’s first seasonal sponsor. According to Dan Carmody, president of Eastern Market Corporation (EMC), this new strategic partnership with Strategic Staffing Solutions includes a three-year commitment to sponsor Eastern Market’s Winter Season and support to expand educational aspects of the Friends of Eastern Market program.

“Strategic Staffing Solutions’ support will allow us to increase awareness of Eastern Market during the winter season and allow us to continue to build new programs as new market facilities, such as the Detroit Community Kitchen, come on line,” shared Carmody.

Eastern Market BannerS3’s gift also supports the Friends of Eastern Market. That program enables the Market to continue work around improving access to healthy, green, affordable, and fair food choices in Detroit and throughout Southeast Michigan while also fortifying the food sector as a pillar of regional economic growth.

Colorful S3 winter season street pole banners and signage have been installed to better welcome Eastern Market visitors from now until the end of March.

“Eastern Market is one of Detroit’s treasures and S3 is committed to supporting our city’s gems and the health of those who live here,” said Cindy Pasky, president and CEO, Strategic Staffing Solutions. “Our sponsorship will help develop and advance one of Detroit’s most cherished places, increase job opportunities and improve access to healthy foods at America’s most complete metropolitan food hub.” 

Eastern Market is still seeking sponsors for the remaining seasons.

“Throughout the year, the nature of the market changes with the seasons. By developing seasonal sponsorships for the Winter, Spring, Summer, Harvest, and Holiday seasons we hope to develop new programs and marketing materials that highlight each season’s distinctiveness,” said Carmody. “We’re grateful for Cindy Pasky’s outstanding leadership in paving the way and appreciate S3’s support as our first seasonal Market sponsor.”

The year ahead will be filled with additional firsts for the Market.  Renovations to Shed 5 will be completed and a new Sunday Market will be launched by early summer. The Dequindre Cut and Midtown Loop greenways will open in the fall.
