Truckloads of Hope! Now Through March 31

Champion Chevrolet of Howell, Matthews-Hargreaves Chevrolet, Champion Chevrolet of Fowlerville and your Metro Detroit Chevy Dealers is proud to support the Truckloads of Hope donation drive supporting the Capuchin Soup Kitchen and specifically their Shower Program and Services Center. A shower is something that may be taken for granted, but the reality is that there are thousands of people right here in Detroit who don’t have that luxury. Therefore, we are collecting the “Donation List” items below to provide those in need with shower access and freshly laundered clothing. Additional items like sheets and diapers are in critical need at the Capuchin Services Center.

For the entire month of March Champion Chevrolet of Howell, Matthews-Hargreaves Chevrolet and Champion Chevrolet of Fowlerville will be accepting donations of supplies, during the Truckloads of Hope campaign.


Founded in 1929, the Capuchin Soup Kitchen serves Metro Detroit by providing food, clothing, and human development programs to the people of our community. Through its programs, the Capuchin Soup Kitchen addresses the needs of thousands of families and individuals each day.

Capuchin Soup Kitchen programs include:

  • Two meal program sites: Serving three daily sit-down and take-away meals, six days per week
  • Shower Program: Providing hygiene and clean clothes year-round
  • Capuchin Services Center: An emergency food pantry and clothing distribution center
  • Emergency Assistance Social Workers: Assisting with longer-term goals
  • Rosa Parks Children’s Program: Providing art programs and tutoring for youth
  • Earthworks Urban Farm: A 1.5-acre USDA-certified organic farm supplying Capuchin Soup Kitchen meal sites and educating the community on building sustainable relationships with the earth

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.


Why Are We Collecting Cleaning Supplies?

In meeting with the Capuchin Organization, they expressed a large need for shower supplies and household staples. The Capuchin Shower Program offers free showers to the homeless. The Shower Program, not only cleans the physical bodies of homeless, but also launders their clothing. This calls out for a great need of shower supplies, towels, and anything that would make someone “feel human again.” Household supplies are also in high demand and short supply. Over the past four years of supporting the Capuchins with this program, the Metro Detroit Chevy Dealers and Champion Chevrolet has helped over 350,000 people.
