Truckloads Of Hope


Joe Lunghamer Chevrolet is proud to host our 6th annual Truckloads of Hope donation drive supporting the Capuchin Soup Kitchen and specifically their Shower Program and Services Center. A shower is something that may be taken for granted, but the reality is that there are thousands of people right here in Detroit who don't have that luxury. Therefore, we are collecting the "Wish List" items below to provide those in need with shower access and freshly laundered clothing. Additional items like sheets and diapers are in critical need at the Capuchin  Services Center.

  • Blankets (full & twin size)
  • Laundry detergent (42oz or 64oz)
  • Hand and bath towels
