Students and Parent if you haven't already read or watched the video regarding our 2020-2021 Service Requirements please do on the previous page Christian Service. Service will look a little different this year. Student may volunteer at multiple agencies beginning this year. While we still encourage students to volunteer at a main agency so they can truly understand the working of a service agency and form relationships with not only those they are serving but those running the agency. Animal Shelters are allowed, volunteering for elderly and sick neighbors, community clean ups, shoveling and yard work for elderly neighbors or family, tutoring inperson or via online will be allowed. Answering any Cathedral Community Call Outs. Students you need to get creative this year. All hours must be recorded on the Mobileserve APP. It is the students responsibilities tmake sure their hours are getting approved by the agency they volunteered with. Direct all service questions to Mrs. Fox at email@example.com

St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry & Warehouse urgently needs volunteers
The National Guard will end their temporary, six-month deployment at the end of September. We are so grateful to the National Guard who have filled a critical gap and provided the workforce needed to keep our Food Pantry open. We have seen dramatic drops in volunteers and cannot continue effectively without more help. SVdP is eager to welcome volunteers regularly to safely distribute food to our neighbors.
We have adapted our operations to prioritize the safety of volunteers and provide food to those in need while following public health guidelines. We need help packing food boxes, repackaging produce and meat, and loading boxes in cars. We can also use more volunteers at our Distribution Center sorting clothing donations. Won’t you please answer the call to help us love our neighbors during this unsettling time so no one goes hungry or without clothing or household goods? Sign up today: http://www.svdpindy.
Should you have any questions contact : Darlene Sweeney@ firstname.lastname@example.org.
