Notes As a community service project, the Greater Detroit B'nai B'rith Council cooperated each year with the women's division of the Jewish Welfare Federation to provide 200 cars and drivers for the Motor Corps which helped to drive workers to areas to solicit Jewish women of Detroit for their contribution to the Allied Jewish Campaign. The collected money was brought to the Michigan State Fairgrounds, where a headquarters was set up to count the funds.
