MATICK CHEVY LAUNCHES ANNUAL CAPUCHIN KITCHEN SHOWER DRIVE

February 28th, 2019 by

Our team members are excited to kick off Matick Chevy’s Third Annual Truckloads of Hope Event to support the Capuchin Soup Kitchen’s Shower Program in Detroit.

We encourage everyone to donate shower supplies and personal items at our dealership’s Silverado display by March 30. In return, you can pick from our gift-card thank-you bag when you donate.

We’re partnering again this year with the Capuchin Services Center to help give homeless individuals an essential, but often overlooked, element of life.

With your help, we will be filling the beds of our special Silverado Truckloads of Hope display with donations that will directly benefit the Capuchin Shower Program. It provides the needy with free shower access and freshly laundered clothing.

Here the program’s wish list of items to donate at Matick Chevy in Redford Township, located at Telegraph Road and I-96, during regular business hours:

Full and twin sheets and blankets
42 and 64 oz. laundry detergent
Dryer sheets
Hand and bath towels
Soap, shampoo and toothpaste
Toothbrushes
Travel-size deodorant, shaving cream and hand sanitizer
Disposable razors
Baby wipes
Socks and underwear
Toilet paper and paper towels
THE CAPUCHIN MISSION
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 every 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 2.5-acre organic farm, and educates the community in regard 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 12-bed residential treatment facility – assists indigent males seeking to reclaim their lives from addiction.
