MELVINDALE, Mich. March 19, 2019 — On Friday March 15, the Evans Distribution Systems Corporate Social Responsibility Committee volunteered at the Capuchin Services Center in Detroit.
The Capuchin Soup Kitchen was founded in 1929 during the Great Depression. When many people lost their jobs and they couldn’t afford to feed themselves. Many displaced people from the Detroit community went to the Capuchin Monastery asking for food. Fr. Solanus a priest at the monastery focused his efforts on providing food for the hungry people in the community and founded the soup kitchen.
All the food and clothing are free for families and donated by local people and businesses. The Evans team participated in the clothing section cleaning, folding clothes, and organizing. This was the committee’s first trip to the Capuchin Soup Kitchen, and they are planning another trip to go back. The committee hopes to participate in the food pantry and soup kitchen next time.
