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.

UTICA | March 16, 2019 — Another project. Another record.
A Time To Help volunteers have long considered Motown Soup one of their favorite projects of the year. Saturday was no different.
The Utica-based all-volunteer nonprofit, which produces and packages dry soups and other mixes to raise funds for the needy, hosted more than two dozen ATTH volunteers in their kitchen and assembly area at Trinity Lutheran Church. In three hours, the group produced and packaged 1,420 soup mixes (about $10,000 worth of product), which beat last year’s ATTH effort of 1,200.
A terrific number, considering the project started late because of the icy commute many volunteers faced on the drive in. . . . continue reading »
It was a stunning transformation, from beginning to end.
For three hours , more than 30 volunteers from A Time to Help helped beautify the area around Cass Community Social Services’ Tiny Homes neighborhood.
Sure, there was a sprinkle here and there but Buckets of Rain made sure our 20-member group kept busy.
In assembly line fashion, more than 20 volunteers joined Mitch Albom and Ken Brown for one of the largest one-day food drives in the country.
Nearly 20 volunteers from A Time to Help joined more than 100 others for Comcast Cares Day, a national day of service on Saturday (April 21) at the S.A.Y. Detroit Play Center at Lipke Park.
