Hard to believe it is that time of year again!  Now that we've flipped the calendar to November, it's time to put together our amazing team of volunteers to help do the Thanksgiving prep work at the St. Vincent DePaul Soup Kitchen in Wilkes-Barre.

Wanna join us in the morning Tuesday Nov 20 when we do all the slicing & dicing for Thanksgiving?  Or, maybe you'd like to start a non-perishable food drive to help the kitchen?

AND St. Vincent DePaul can ALWAYS use volunteers.  They operate 365 days a year!  We always remember the needy around Thanksgiving & Christmas.  But help is needed at the kitchen in the Summer months too!  That is our goal every year.  Hopefully your rewarding experience with us will lead to you giving back to the kitchen at other times as well.

It's a truly rewarding experience helping out at the kitchen.  Many parents bring their kids before school.  And a lot of you put together teams of volunteers from work. 

Hope to see you there!
