Feed the Hungry June 2010
On Sunday, June 27 the Phi Iota Chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. volunteered to serve meals at the Society of St. Vincent de Paul kitchen in Phoenix. This partnership proved to be just as rewarding to the volunteers as it was to those being served.
The Society of St. Vincent de Paul is an international non-profit organization dedicated to serving the poor and providing others with the opportunity to serve. The Phoenix Diocesan Council has been assisting central and northern Arizona families since 1946. Programs include services for the homeless, medical and dental care for the working poor, charity dining rooms, thrift stores, a transitional housing shelter and general assistance for individuals in need (See the following photographs).
