On March 20th, 2022, VT Seva Detroit completed a drive for Detroit Rescue Homeless Shelter with the help of Kroger Stores Solicitation.
VT Seva Detroit team raised a total of $800 and collected around six big boxes of Baby care products and personal care & hygiene products for Men and Women with the help of generous customers who shopped at Kroger Canton Stores from 10 am to 4:30 pm.
The Detroit Rescue Mission Ministries (DRMM) has spent over 100 years providing food, shelter, and services to intervene where homelessness and substance addiction occur—giving hope to the hopeless, abused, and disadvantaged of the Detroit Community. They have constant needs for essential items such as clothing, blankets, cleaning products, personal hygiene items, and winter clothes for all their housing shelters for homeless people.

Our youth and adult volunteers showed a great volunteering spirit throughout their shift slots, reaching out to all customers, distributing the flyers, speaking about VT Seva Detroit, and explaining the reason behind this drive. Everyone did a great job with their customer-friendly skills and approach. There were times when we had a tough time in not so responsive customers; however, they never gave up and continued with the same zeal and smile.
VT Seva Detroit sincerely thanks every youth and adult volunteer who contributed their time and efforts to make it a successful drive.
