Donations will directly benefit the Capuchin Services Center’s Shower Program, which provides those less fortunate with shower access and freshly laundered clothing.

Visit our showroom during the month of March and place donations in the back of the Silverado truck bed.

Truckloads of Hope

Founded in 1929, the Capuchin Soup Kitchen serves Metro Detroit by providing food, clothing, and human development programs to the people of our community. In addition to preparing and serving up to 2,000 meals a day, it operates a shower program, emergency food pantry, and a tutoring and art therapy program for children. It also distributes household items and clothing. Its Earthworks Urban Farm harvests six tons of produce from a two and a half acre organic farm, and educates the community in regards to sustainable relationships between human beings and the earth. The Soup Kitchen’s On the Rise Bakery assists individuals “re-entering” society after bouts of incarceration or substance abuse. In addition, the Capuchin Soup Kitchen’s Jefferson House, a twelve bed residential treatment facility, assists indigent males seeking to reclaim their lives from addiction.
