South Oakland Shelter (SOS)

Tuesday, April 10, 2012
10:00 AM- 4:00 PM
Time 2-3 hours

Sign up! 

Meet at:

18505 W Twelve Mile Rd
Lathrup Village, MI 48046

Enter through the rear entrance.  Look for a blue awning.


Drop in any time for a couple of hours and show a caring attitude by actively interfacing with the clients by participating in bingo,  card games or just plain conversation.

Some clients may need a mock interview or a few  words of encouragement. When a "brother or sister" is feeling low a few words of encouragement can be priceless.  If you're a good listener and enjoy conversation this is for you.

  • A donation of game prizes, food snacks, treats  etc for SOS clients would be greatly appreciated, but not required.

Available for 25 volunteers 

Minimum age: 18 yrs
