From Soup to Nuts, Volunteers Help Feed Hungry Detroiters

February 05, 2024

Bolstered by four new volunteers, A Time to Help was determined to make its first project of the year a special one at Motown Soup.

Indeed it was.

Motown Soup is no stranger to ATTH, which volunteers once to twice a year to package dry soup mixes and other items in an effort to restock the nonprofit’s inventory either before or after the holiday season.

On Saturday (Feb. 3), more than two dozen volunteers packaged 1,484 mixes for Motown Soup, an all-volunteer organization which over the past 18 years has raised almost $2 million for charities around the state by selling soups, dips and other mixes.

“We couldn’t do what we do without groups like you,’’ said Dan Kennedy, a Motown Soup volunteer who coordinated ATTH’s project at Trinity Lutheran Church in Utica.

For longtime ATTH volunteer Kathleen Vogel, volunteering is the best way to give back.

“In three hours you can make a big difference,’’ she said. “I enjoy learning about what other charities do, and you get to see the results of a big group project like this one on a Saturday. Really, you can change a life one morning at a time.’’

ATTH’s next project is March 23 at The Greening of Detroit for a community tree planting event. Registration will be posted soon on our volunteer platform.
