Helping Hungry Hearts
Academy of the Sacred Heart
Bloomfield Hill, MI
Helping Hungry Hearts will focus on learning about hunger in teh Detroit Metro area, and volunteering at organizations to help alleviate the hunger. We will spend time touring and volunteering at organizations such as Gleaner's Food Bank in Detroit. We will serve dinner at the Capuchin Soup Kitchen in Detroit or Grace Centers of Hope in Pontiac, and visit Crossroads of Michigan in Detroit where we will prepare and distribute lunch to children. One morning will be spent harvesting food from a community garden which donates its crops to local food banks. On their final night, students will celebrate their hard work with an excursion to teh Adventure Park of West Bloomfield, a local adventure park with a ropes and obstacle course. Evenings will include time for hunger education, journaling, prayer services, and reflection sharing among group members which will incorporate all five Goals.
All transportation will be by bus booked through accredited companies ASH utilizes year-round.
