The Detroit Moose, sponsors, friends and family continued its contribution to the community by serving the needy of Detroit this is our 11th Annual Soup Kitchen and Coat Drive. This annual event took place at Spirit of Hope Church located at the corner of Martin Luther King and Trumbull in the heart of the City of Detroit. 

The team and its families along with its closest friends served up a meal for over 140 people. This takes an enormous amount of preparation. Buying, preparing over 40 gallons of taco soup takes a lot of muscle. In addition to the soup, salad and dessert, all of the volunteers joined in an effort to make 20 loaves of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches so they have something to eat later that day. We folded plastic knives, forks and spoons into napkins take’s an efficient assembly line. New assistant captain Dave Lakatos, the king of the utensil folding, said “This is the Moose’s eleventh year of doing this event here at the Church of Good Hope and my seventh. Yes, we are pretty competitive team on the ice but It’s more about what we do off the ice that matters. This is what will be always be remembered about the Moose hockey club. 

Thank you to all of those teammated, family and friends that joined us in the D.

A additional big thank you to one of our sponsors JGM Valve for providing the food we served at the event.
