What we're about

Please join us in supporting local charities and non-profit groups. These groups do so much for our community and we want them to know that we support them. This is a way to get active, have fun, and meet new people!

We will organize volunteer opportunities throughout Metro Detroit, offering group members a good variety of hand-on activities to participate in. All of our activities will be in the evenings or on the weekends making them convenient for people who work during the day.

Most of our volunteer projects require that we work as a team. Projects are often planned based on the number of volunteers expected, because of this it is important that if you sign-up, you show-up. If you get 3 no-shows you will be removed from this group. Make sure to update your RSVP at least 24 hours in advance if you can no longer attend an event.

Good Karma Club Guidelines & Rules

The first rule of GKC is respect. Show respect for your fellow volunteers, respect the organization that we are there to help, and most importantly show the utmost respect to any individuals that are seeking help at these organizations.

The second rule of GKC is that if you sign-up, show-up. Any members that acquire 3 no-shows will politely be removed from the group. Always look or ask for a sign-in sheet at events so that you don’t get marked as a no-show by mistake. Give both your name and your GKC screen name on sign in sheet if they are different.

When events are full that means that no additional members can attend. This is often a number set by the non-profit based on space limitations. Do not attend events that you weren’t able to RSVP for. Watch for spots to open up the day before or the day of.

We ask that members attend at least one event per year. Any members that choose not to participate for over a year will be politely removed from the group.

Each non-profit organization has its own rules. These may include a dress code, age limits, interaction with the organizations clientele, etc. You will be informed of the organizations rules and we ask that you respect them.

Motown Soup Volunteer Event - ** Cancelled **

Trinity Lutheran Church

When you arrive, please make sure you sign in and write GKC next to your name as well as on your nametag. As there are many other volunteers at this event, it can be hard to find other Good Karma Clubbers. I have a blue Detroit Tigers hat, so come say hello if I don't find you first. Motown Soup volunteers work out of the Trinity Lutheran kitchen, NE corner of M-59 and Van Dyke. Come through the main entrance into the lobby, take the elevator or stairs to the lower level. Find us in the kitchen and fellowship hall. We provide the aprons, gloves, hairnets. (one can wear their own baseball hat). Long hair needs to be tied back unless it all fits in the hair net. We work with you, show you what to do. It's a production line with 1 tablespoon of this, a teaspoon of that, a cup of beans and whatnot. We seal the bags, then heat/security seal. Label, box, and ready for sale. We have stand up jobs and sit down jobs. We ask for volunteers to be age 16 or up. Motown Soup is a collaboration of volunteers who produce quality soup and food mixes in a State Dept. of Agriculture licensed kitchen. 100% of profits are donated to soup kitchens, homeless shelters, food banks and free clinics. Motown Soup is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit. We thank Trinity Lutheran Church, Utica, MI, for providing a kitchen, storage area, facilitator and many volunteers.
