St. Vincent de Paul Thanksgiving Day 2019

St. Vincent de Paul Thanksgiving Day 2019

Thanksgiving Day is a special day at St. Vincent de Paul. We look forward to serving our guests an "all you can eat" delectable Thanksgiving meal. It will be made extra special because it is a sit-down dinner for our guests. On most days, we serve meals cafeteria style, but we do it differently on special holidays to make it exceptional for our guests. We rely on our precious volunteers to make this happen.

This year, we are thrilled that the Louisiana Housing Corporation and the Louisiana Balance of State Continuum of Care have joined us. This year, we will be able to better serve those experiencing homelessness and those at-risk of homelessness.  We salute and thank Mayor-President Sharon Weston-Broome, Major Reginald Brown, the Louisiana Housing Corporation, Louisiana Balance of State Continuum of Care, Ronda Ruffino, Chef Peter Palisi, and the entire crew at the Raising Cane’s River Center.  These community leaders are once again playing a critical role in reaching people who truly need a helping hand this holiday season.  Thank you for all you do on behalf of those we are able to serve on Thanksgiving Day.

On the day before Thanksgiving between 8 AM and 11 AM, we will need eight turkey prep masters to come to St. Vincent de Paul and carve the turkeys that will be served on Thanksgiving Day. Do you have carving skills? Please consider coming to help us out. Knives will be provided.

We would like for the Dining Room of St. Vincent de Paul to be decorated festively to make the day extra special for our guests. We would love to have a group of five volunteers willing to make or purchase Thanksgiving decorations for twenty tables in our Dining room and come the morning of Thanksgiving to set up the decorations between 9 AM and 10:30 AM.

We will also distribute Bags of Hope to our guests following the meal and will need volunteers to distribute them to guests as they exit the Dining Room. Of course, we will also follow tradition and have a Thanksgiving store in the parking lot where guests can pick items they need for free. Volunteers will be needed to help out at the store.

Our volunteers will need to arrive at 10:30 AM and be prepared to stay until 1:00 PM. Please park in the 17th Street parking lot. A campus map is attached for your convenience. After the last guest has been served, we invite you to enjoy a nice Thanksgiving meal with us. We ask that you wear long pants (capris for ladies), a shirt with a sleeve and close-toed shoes.

Won't you come and be a part of spreading goodwill to some of the most vulnerable members of our community? It will be a lovely day. We look forward to seeing you here.

We want as many people as possible to experience volunteerism at St. Vincent de Paul; therefore, we would like to limit groups to filling only six (6) sign-up slots for Thanksgiving Day. Thank you for your understanding. If this limit creates a problem, please contact our volunteer coordinator.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to phone our volunteer coordinator at 383-7837, ext. 207.
