Bluewater Habitat for Humanity As a requirement of The Fighting Pi, each student actively participates in at least 25 hours of collaboratively donated time with team community service and outreach activities. The team, as a whole, continually volunteers at the Ronald McDonald House of Detroit, and participates in Macomb County's Adopt-A-Road and the Macomb Orchard Trail Adopt-A-Trail cleanup programs. Team members annually participate, in a Sock Puppet Marathon in coalition with the School Section 4-H Club, resulting in the creation of over 1,500 sock puppets. These items benefit children in third world countries by distracting them when receiving immunizations and are given to the child to keep afterward.

The team has also raised money for St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital, held a used book and toy drive for a battered women's shelter, participated in events such as Toys for Tots, the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life, and helped landscape for the Bluewater Habitat for Humanity.


The Fighting Pi is also part of the Purple Alliance, a community service organization for FIRST teams in Southeastern Michigan. For more information about joining the Purple Alliance, visit purplealliance.org.
