How You Can Help
Downriver Panthers is a community-based group depending not only on donations and fundraisers, but also on the volunteers and local community support.

Community Partners

We proudly partner with a number of local businesses and organizations such as: Woodhaven Bowling Lanes, Flat Rock Community Center and Taylor Evangel Baptist Church to provide discounted fees as well as meeting locations for our group. We welcome new partnerships in our local communities to better serve our Downriver members.


We are always looking for volunteers to:

  • Help organize events
  • Set up and take down bowling equipment
  • Assist individuals with physical challenges to access ramps, computers, etc.
  • Be a buddy or an umpire for a younger baseball player


We welcome monetary donations to Downriver Panthers.

All non tax deductible donations go to accomplishing our mission of providing adaptive sports and fun activities for special need individuals and their families in the Downriver area.
