For over 20 years, La Casa has partnered with St. Vincent de Paul by sending 15 volunteers to serve a noon meal to the homeless the THIRD Sunday of every month.
Through the years, there have been many faithful volunteers. The gift of their time and effort has been priceless.
It is guaranteed that you will go home knowing you have been blessed to be a blessing. If you would like to have an opportunity to experience this worthwhile activity, sign-ups are at the Ministry Center at church on Sundays, or you can call the church office during the week.
Volunteer members from La Casa work with the staff of St. Vincent de Paul to serve the noon meal on the third Sunday of each month. Actual assignments are made upon arrival. The group leaves from the church at 9am. Look for the group wearing blue St. Vincent de Paul aprons standing near the welcome table outside. Or, you can meet us there at 9:30am. The group is done at 1pm.
Age Requirements: 14 years and older (14-15 year olds must be with a parent)
The dining room is located at:
1300 W Harrison St.
Phoenix, AZ 85007
Serving from 9am to 1pm
Why Your Service Matters:
Our dining rooms are strategically located throughout the Valley, from Mesa to El Mirage, to be easily accessible to the people who need them most. Every day, we prepare more than 4,500 nourishing meals free of charge to individuals and families experiencing or at risk of homelessness. By helping with food and other necessities, our families can then put their limited incomes into rent, utilities, and other expenses; your service is helping to save lives and prevent homelessness.
