Every organization should be able to give a simple, one-sentence mission statement of their purpose. If I was tasked with providing one for our speaker’s organization, S.O.U.L (Source Of Universal Love), it would be “They deal in human kindness”.
Ginger Wiechers, our speaker, is the founder and Executive Director of S.O.U.L. It began in 2003 when Ginger, who owned a coffee shop kept hearing of the many people who had requests for food. Over the years her passion to help those in need of food and shelter morphed into S.O.U.L. They have an office in Downtown Farmington. They service 900 people in the Farmington, Livonia, and Redford areas. They take food donations and raise money by conducting monthly estate sales.
They have a resale store that also funds many of their giving programs. Many of their clients are working people who were low-income households, and if one household member got sick, it could throw their entire budget into disorder. Sometimes people in need must decide whether to pay their rent or pay for groceries.
One way people can express human kindness is through food and financial support. S.O.U.L. fills this mission with love and compassion. For additional information about S.O.U.L, call (248)318-6691 or look them up and friend them on Facebook, Source of Universal Love.
