Volunteer needed immediately!
Can you help? SVDM needs a volunteer to pick up food items from the Big Y at 1030 W.Elm Street in Rocky Hill on Mondays between 9-10 a.m. and drive them to the Soup Kitchen, 617 Main St., Middletown.
The items will already be set aside for you by the store. Please contact Lydia Brewster, 860-344-0097 x 18 for more details and orientation. With your group's help, Sunday breakfasts will be served at St. Vincent de Paul's Soup Kitchen all fall and winter long. Organizers are looking for groups to provide a Sunday breakfast about once a month at the Soup Kitchen from 7 a.m.to 9 a.m. All you need is a small team, your own breakfast foods to bring in, prepare and serve (eggs, coffee, juice, toast) and paper goods. Someone who knows the ropes can come in and help you if you'd like assistance on your group's day. St. Pius X Church and First Congregational Church have committed to a number of dates, but there are still gaps. Please contact Brian Rarey 860-573-4862 for more information and to reserve your group's date.
OUR NEW VIDEO
Liberty Bank President and CEO Chandler J. Howard and Liberty Bank Foundation Executive Director Sue Murphy stopped by the St. Vincent de Paul Soup Kitchen in Middletown with a pleasant surprise: a $25,000 check donated by an attendee of the bank's "Tee Party" golf outing! The annual event is a fundraiser for St. Vincent DePaul's which provides food and other assistance to people in need. Guests of the soup kitchen joined Chandler and Sue for a photo to say "thank you" to the generous donor.
A big thank you to the Moran-Nixon chapter of the Credit Union League of CT who chose Amazing Grace Food Pantry as one of their recipients this year to receive $1,000!! Blessings to all for thinking of Amazing Grace!
