Delivers consistent and well needed services to the Brightmoor district of Detroit. Always with a smile.
They're there! With all the change the residents of my Brightmoor community are facing, St. Christine remains to set the standard other programs in this area strive to meet. Twice a week we are provided a delicious healthy meal from volunteers at the soup kitchen, as well as groceries from the food pantry. On weekdays the coffee and donuts are cheerfully provided in the same building where we can seek assistance from the St. Vincent de Paul organization.
I have volunteered here multiple time with my coworkers. It is always such a rewarding, gratifying and humbling time. The genuine and sincere people you meet are amazing. I heard their stories, met their families and even got hugs! It's SUCH a fulfilling experience.
I in fact was asked to be Santa! It is like a whirlwind of good feelings! I helped cook a spaghetti lunch and got to had out presents to some amazing children. i have no words to describe the joy that was spread to our guests. The faces of the children said more than any words could ever describe. In fact I thought both of my elves were going to breakdown into tears just listening to the responses from the kids. If you truly want to feel the hand of god at work this was it.
working to serve others
It was a great experience volunteering here at the soup kitchen. This was GLBV Youth Volunteer Group's first event and it was a great success. The staff was very helpful and welcoming.
We recently volunteered at St. Christine soup kitchen and it was an amazing experience. This was my first time and it won't be my last either. We plan to do this often. Also this is a great organization and I have personally witnessed the good work of this organization. St. Christine soup kitchen serves many people in the community and thank all the staff who helped us to do a great soup kitchen.
I volunteered at the soup kitchen with the GLBV youth group and it was an amazing expierence. We plan to do This often and giving back to the communities and helping less fortunate people really do good for the soul. Some people came up and told us how grateful they were and also how good the food was! It made me feel something I can't explain and I'm very grateful for having the opportunity to do this with my friends.
It was such a blessing to serve our neighbors at the hour of need. May God Bless the wonderful volunteers and the beautiful people and families who came to eat. May God guide you all during these difficult times and God may bless you with happiness, peace, good health and guidance in life in this wonderful life God has given us! Special Thank you to St. Catherine Soup kitchen for continuing to serve the community!
Waking up in the morning to help serve the community was very much worth it. From the morning set up to the ending clean up, it was a very positive experience. The volunteers that help regularly were very inspirational in helping our efforts to give to the community.
We recently volunteered at St. Christine soup kitchen. From the time I contacted Sr. Magdalena with my initial request to have us do a soup kitchen to until the time we completed our volunteer service with our newly formed Youth volunteer group, communication had been excellent. Sr. Magdalena and the other staff members at the soup kitchen were very friendly and assisted and guided us so the youth volunteers of our group could really enjoy and serve the community as they wished following their group's vision. I myself and other parents and youngsters who participated left the facility thinking when we could do this again. St. Christine soup kitchen serves many people in the community and I thank Sr. Magdalena and her staff for their great offer.
There is a great need for the basics in the neighborhood and St. Christine provides it with lots of volunteered time, donations, and a make it work attitude
St Christine's operates in the Brightmoor district of Detroit, arguably the most economically challenged area in Detroit. I have personally witnessed the good work of this organization on many occasions, both in the soup kitchen and the food pantry. St. Christine's is a beacon of hope for their "clients", many who are families with small children who have no were else to turn and are fighting to extract themselves from the shackles of severe poverty. Without St Christine's they might have no hope.
