St. Vincent De Paul Society, Inc.
November 22, 2010
Every day that I volunteer at St. Vincent De Paul Society Council in Naples, Florida I'm amazed at all that gets accomplished with running a Meals On Wheels program that provides 85,000 meals annually, the providing of food on a daily weekday basis to people that walk in, many days 40/50 or more arrive at the Center and they are professionally screened and treated with respect. Besides food they are provided,if needed, with rent assistance,clothing,funiture, and given referrals to other agencies for any other assistance that may be necessary. All of this is accomplished with a full time staff of just 8 people and volunteers.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Since being involved over the past 3 years as a voluteer I've witnessed first hand that by giving a helping hand some of those people have gottten back on their feet and this is very gratifying.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
The organization needs to do more in getting the word out to the Naples community of all the good that it accomplishes locally and this ,hopefully, could lead to more financial help so that the St. Vincent De Paul Society could help even more people .
Volunteer & Every Thursday I see those people that are in immediate need and help them with food, clothing, furniture etc.
