SoupGrant Summer Series

Our next SoupGrant is on June 15, and it’s NOT at our usual location! This summer we’re taking SoupGrant on the road. For the next three months, SoupGrant Lansing will be hosted at different locations to make our microgrant fundraiser more accessible to people and projects around Lansing.

About our presenters

greater_michigan_mda

Greater Michigan MDA Summer Camp is a magical weeklong camp for children ages 6 – 17, who have been diagnosed with one of the
43 neuromuscular diseases that MDA treats and researches. There is no fee to attend MDA Summer Camp. Whether on the beach, where plywood is laid and ramps have been built, or at the petting zoo, or bonfire pit– camp offers a fun and safe outdoor experience. Accessible activities range from swimming, boating, adaptive sports, tree climbing, and horseback riding, to less physically demanding programs like arts and crafts, talent shows and casino night.

The Capital Region Habitat Young Professionals (HYP) aims to teach building and construction skills to children in our community. Through workshop experiences, elementary-aged children will benefit from an interactive environment that allows them to broaden their knowledge base through problem solving, imagination, self-expression,
and social and emotional growth.

$5 at the door gives you a vote for the project of your choice. At the end of the night, the project with the most votes takes home the money as a SoupGrant!

You don’t just get a vote, we also feed you! Prepare yourself for an array of delicious, homemade soups that our soup chef, Terry, has in store for you! (Did we mention the soup is FREE?) There are always vegetarian and vegan options available, too.

Our next SoupGrant is on July 20 (the 3rd Thursday of the month). Bring a bowl and spoon for soup – and a friend or two!
