DETROIT (AP) - Black health care executives are scheduled to help open boxes of food at Focus: HOPE’s central warehouse in Detroit.

The National Association of Health Services Executives says its members also will place the food on pallets Saturday morning for eventual distribution to the needy in the Detroit area.

The group promotes the advancement and development of black health care leaders and seeks to improve the quality of health care to minorities and underserved communities.

Focus: HOPE is a Detroit-based human and civil rights organization. It was founded in 1968 after riots widened the rift between Detroit’s black and white residents.

The organization’s food program has provided canned and packaged food to more than 21 million people since 1971.
