Queen of Angels SVDP Youth Group and some 8th grade confirmandi helped with the holiday food distribution. They set up tables, sorted groceries into departments including 20 cases of fresh produce and personal items like toilet paper and diapers. As our client families arrived youth assisted in helping to select and carry.
Setting up grocery store style allows those we serve the dignity of selecting items they want and need rather than receiving a random assortment which may not agree with their cultural preferences. Afterwards the youth helped to clean up and discard empty boxes.
The youth really made the connection of serving those in need while allowing for dignity of the person being served. Over 71 families were served.
