St. Vincent de Paul Georgia
September 17, 2013
I had the privelege of volunteering with a program that Saint Vincent de Paul conducts in the summertime, in conjunction with Kraft Foods, that focuses on teaching healthy, cost effective eating and lifestyle habits to underpriveleged children aged 8-13 years old. For most of these kids, the meals they were given at the program were the most substantial meals they would be able to eat, if not the only meals. With childhood obesity at an all-time high, the progressive attitude of Saint Vincent de Paul and their efforts to jump start healthy lifestyle choices for these children is imperative to securing a vibrant future for the younger generation. Staff members at Saint Vincent de Paul took the time to make the meals themselves at home, making enough for twenty children and transported them, as well. St. Vincent de Paul's unwavering commitment to bettering the community is unmatched, from camps, well providing discounted business- professional clothing to help people find jobs and get back on their feet, emergency bags with food when families find themselves in a crisis, and so much more. This organization receives nothing but my highest respect and praise.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
possibly expand more offices to the metro Atlanta area, so that staff members would not have to drive so far and they could better serve the surrounding communities.
