St. Vincent de Paul
St. Vincent de Paul
In a continuing effort to give back to the local community, employees of the Payless Car Rental corporate office assist in feeding the homeless at a local St. Vincent de Paul Soup Kitchen in St.Petersburg, FL.
The range of volunteers vary from day to day and are from all walks of life, although the responsibilities of the soup kitchen never change. There is a Ms. JoeAnn Lemon in every facility, one who manages the kitchen and assigns each volunteer their specific tasks for the duration of their job. Some of these tasks may include: greeting people at the door, signing them in with a numbered ticket, preparing the food and serving the food, dish duty, and clean up. It’s a fast-paced atmosphere for the 1 hour serving duration that occurs 365 days a year for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
St. Vincent de Paul is international relief organization of men and women whose members assist and administer to the poor and unfortunate. Founded in 1833 by Frederick Ozanam, he along with other students attending the University of Paris wanted to address the needs of the poor, but wanted also to improve the lives of young people urging them to perform works of charity. Today there are thousands of active conferences around the world with close to a million active members. Over $200 million in direct assistance is distributed annually to the poor throughout the US alone.
Payless Car Rental realizes the lack of comprehensive services available to people in need and that’s why they have devoted themselves to making a difference.
Their volunteer work will continue at the local soup kitchen with the hope that their dedication to making a difference will catch on. For more information on volunteering, contact your local St. Vincent de Paul Society.
