 We would appreciate your time to further the mission of Motown Soup! 

 Here are some fun shots from a couple of our

"soup assembly" sessions.  


Don't worry that you've never done this before.  You will get instruction, be "suited" up with aprons, hat, & gloves, and put on the line!

We have sit down jobs, such as labeling, packaging, & sealing, as well as standing.  Groups can come in (with advanced notice) such as Mitch Albom's group - Time to Help!     

What a great opportunity to give back to the community and have fun at the same time!!!
