USA: Saturdays in the soup kitchen
Duff Michowski, a project engineer at the Henkel production facility in Warren, Michigan, USA, spends many a Saturday cooking in the St. Leo soup kitchen in Detroit. Assisting the two permanently employed cooks, volunteers help to prepare meals for some 200 - 300 people, six days a week.
In addition to a warm meal, those in need can receive medical treatment, have their hair cut or take a shower, all free of charge. They are also provided with clothing. Henkel supports the soup kitchen not only with cash funding but also with product donations in the form of Dial soaps and deodorants.
