UTICA — The final tally was impressive: 1,281 soup mixes and 334 spice bags.

S.A.Y. Detroit’s A Time to Help army of volunteers held their first project of the year Saturday (Jan. 20) at Motown Soup in Utica, packaging dry soups and other products with the sole intention of helping others in need.

All proceeds from the sales of the soups becomes needed funding for nonprofits to do their work, including S.A.Y. Detroit’s operating partner — the Detroit Rescue Mission Ministries — which received over $17,000 in funding in 2017, said Dan Karlin, Motown Soup’s longtime volunteer facilitator.

For more than three hours, nearly 40 volunteers, including more than a half dozen who were making Saturday’s project their first-ever ATTH event, were part of several assembly lines packaging, sealing and labeling Motown Soup’s best-selling soups such as Chicken Pot Pie, Tomato Basil, Beef Barley with Vegetables, Lemon Orzo and Chicken Noodle.

“It’s a larger group than we normally have, but we’re happy to see you,” Karlin said. “Your volunteers are eager and are trained well.”

Paul and Janet Skowronski, a recently retired couple from Fraser, registered for Saturday’s event after making last month’s Salvation Army Christmas Party their inaugural ATTH volunteer project.

“Our kids came with us, and it was so much fun that we wanted to do another event,” Janet Skowronski said. “We’re retired, and we’re trying to find things to do. We also do Meals on Wheels on Mondays. It makes you very grateful.”

ATTH’s next project is February 17 at Arts & Scraps. Registration for that product will begin Tuesday at atimetohelp.org.
