Detroit Moose helping the homeless Oct. 20 at soup kitchen
October 9, 2007 – 08:00 AM
Last year the team volunteered at the soup kitchen, located at Trumbell and Martin Luther King Blvd, and helped serve about 200 needy people. The team also raised a few hundred dollars and gave a donation to the church.
This year, the Moose is also holding a coat drive and will deliver the coats to needy people at the charity event. Moose players and family members will volunteer at the church from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Moose player/doctor Zach Lewis helped organize the event along with Captain Derek Fowler.
The Moose team also wants to thank its sponsors for providing assistance: Custom Car Works, Double H Manufacturing, Harlow Tire, and a group that supports the friends and families of victims of 9/11. Each Moose player will wear their team jersey with patches identifying the sponsors.
