Needed: School Supplies for our Soup Kitchen Kids

While most might be enjoying the last hot days of summer, the children served by the Capuchin Soup Kitchen through our Rosa Parks Youth Program and the Grandparents Raising Grandchildren Program are already thinking about returning to school. They are in need of school supplies in order to succeed during the upcoming academic year.

If you are able to help, please deliver supplies by August 29 to either of the locations below:

  • Capuchin Soup Kitchen’s Conner Kitchen (4390 Conner Street, Detroit)
  • Capuchin Soup Kitchen’s Meldrum Kitchen (1264 Meldrum Street, Detroit)

We thank you in advance!
