Any comments about your selections you would like to share with the student philanthropists?
St. Francis Seraph Ministries (SFSM) serves Breakfast and Dinner 5 days a week in their Dining Room (aka Soup Kitchen) to help those we are fighting poverty and are hungry and/or homeless. SFSM also teaches Cooking, sewing and jewelry making classes as skills that are not taught anymore in schools. By teaching students to cook healthy meals for a family of 4-6 under $10, we are helping to tackle obesity that is huge among the poor because it is easy to buy process food cheap. We also teach sewing and jewelry classes in hopes that students will continue to make items and we will represent them as artists for a supplemental income.
Does your organization have volunteer opportunities available for students? * Yes, Grades 6 – 12
