Community service call

From my old friends at NYU:

St. Joseph's Soup Kitchen located at the corner of Sixth Avenue and Washington Place is in urgent need of volunteers
for both the morning prep shift from 10:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. and food service shift from 1:00 p.m. - 3:30 p.m.

Many of the soup kitchen's regular volunteers will be on vacation this week and the crew will be very short-handed.

Last week, St. Joseph's served 525 meals to hungry New Yorkers. This week with the anticipated heat wave, the numbers
are expected to be even greater as hunger is mixed with heat and homeless people are driven indoors for a brief respite in the air conditioning.

Please help.

To volunteer, please contact the Office of Community Service at (212) 998-4994 and a staff member will register you.

The phone number listed is for NYU, which you can probably ignore, and the parish website is yonder.
