Hey Folks, The Weekend Is Almost Here, And Boy Are We Getting Ready For The NFL Playoffs. That Being Said, Let’s Keep In Mind The Folks Who Need A Little Extra Help This Time Of Year. The Focal Point Of Today’s Shelter Spotlight is The Capuchin Soup Kitchen located in Detroit, Michigan.

Each week they serve over 2,500 meals and each year the supply nearly 300,000 lbs of food to the hungry and homeless in the surrounding areas. Founded in 1883, they are one of oldest Soup Kitchens in the United States. They are located at 4390 Conner Ave., Detroit, MI 48215 and can be reached by phone at: (313) 822-8606.

 

Since its inception, the Capuchin Soup Kitchen has depended on the time and efforts of others in the community who shared our concern and commitment to the poor. At the heart of our mission is the service of the many volunteers that donate their time on a daily, weekly or monthly basis. Whether preparing food in the kitchen, serving meals to guests; planting, weeding or harvesting in the Earthworks garden; hanging clothing, building pantry boxes or packaging meat in the Services Center; tutoring or mentoring a child or assisting in the Arts program at the Children’s Library, volunteers provide the extra pair of hands, the warm smile and caring attitude that make the Capuchin Soup Kitchen what it is. The hours of service given by volunteers translates into over 30 additional full time staff that would have to be employed to serve those who come to our door. The generous gift of time given to the Capuchin Soup Kitchen by volunteers insures that we are able to return eighty-nine cents of every donated dollar to direct client services“. – From their website: http://www.cskdetroit.org

We at Hatter & Beanz have thought of something interesting and, even though our idea may not be so unique it’s something for those who may be less fortunate or those that may have been hit hard by the economic downfall.  

So readers, as we give thanks for our families, our friends and the roofs over our heads we have built for you a list of soup kitchens and shelters and services in each of the 50 states. (Oh by the way, we personally checked each reference).

So here’s how this is going down, we’re going to sort this by state, and right now our goal is to list one or two organizations by per state for this year. At Christmas, we’ll add one or two more, per state.
