Volunteer with us!

Are you looking for a way to give back to the community?  Join more than 100 people who have given their time to assembly mixes with Motown Soup!  Come by yourself, with a friend, or bring a group.  Do it for fun or earn some community service hours. 

Motown Soup 2017 Work Schedule


Note:  Tuesday or Saturday mornings could be cancelled due to a funeral luncheon or weather. Saturdays:  please advise us that you will be coming so that we can be prepared for you to work.   Register with a note to motownsoup@yahoo.com.   If we have more volunteers than anticipated, we might not be ready and setup for them…this causes us to take much more time to set up while volunteers wait. 


  • Tuesday morning shifts are 9:30a.m. to 11:45 a.m.:   Currently full! 
    Please consider Tuesday evenings or Saturday mornings.  We will post when there is availability again in the mornings.
  • Tuesday night shifts are from 7:00 p.m. to 8:45 p.m.
  • Saturday morning shifts are from 9:00 a.m. to noon.
  • Additional shifts may be added in November/December.
  • Meet in the kitchen of Trinity Lutheran Church, 45160 Van Dyke Ave., in Utica.  (Corner of Hall Rd & Van Dyke)
  • Minimum volunteer age:  16.
  • If you have long hair, tie it back before arriving.  Volunteers wear aprons, gloves, and hats/hairnets - provided by Motown Soup.

 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!!!
