Years ago, we had just a few student volunteers visit our Georgetown St. Vincent de Paul Food Bank. We’ve worked very hard to change that. Last year, we had over 1,000 students, teachers and parents from Catholic and public elementary, middle and high schools visit us. We also had over 500 representatives of businesses and corporations visit us as well. Together we all served close to 18,000 families.
Serving, helping and being in community with our neighbors is transformative. The people who come and volunteer at our food bank acknowledge and report that to us frequently.
We recently received an affirmation we want to share with you. Please see the attached reflection. It is from a third-grade student at Holy Family Seattle Catholic School. She recently visited us along with a group of third & fourth graders. Thank you, Holy Family students for being part of our team at the St. Vincent de Paul Georgetown Food Bank.
