Established in 1997 to galvanize volunteerism on a regular basis, A Time to Help stages monthly projects to aid the needy and promote unity in metro Detroit.
Since then, more than 200 monthly projects have been completed by thousands of volunteers, ranging from building houses, delivering meals, beautifying city streets, running adoption fairs, repairing homeless shelters, packing food, and hosting an annual Christmas party to a shelter for battered women.
Mitch Albom and WJR co-host Ken Brown lead each monthly project, usually held on Saturdays between 9AM – noon. Volunteers can sign up for one, two or all, and there are no requirements, except that, for most events, volunteers should be at least 18 years of age. Older teenagers can come if accompanied by at least one adult supervisor for every four of them.

Joy in the smiles of mothers and their children who need a helping hand. Joy on the faces of more than 60 A Time to Help volunteers who put on a magical event.
Assisted by Motown Soup’s volunteer leaders, nearly 40 ATTH volunteers packaged 1,704 packages of soup and other dry goods in just under three hours. It was the second time this year that ATTH helped restock the storage room for the nonprofit.
Volunteers from A Time to Help, SAY Detroit Muscle Crew, and Pastor Kevin Ramsby’s group from Arise Church joined together to spruce up SAY Play before its opening next week.
There was something for everyone at the 2019 SAY Detroit Family Health Clinic’s community health fair, including plenty of giving by A Time to Help volunteers.
Volunteers weeded, cleaned garden beds, planted and do other light chores at Buckets of Rain, which provides fresh produce for the homeless and hungry and SAY Clinic’s patients.
