JCI St Vincent donates groceries to soup kitchen

JCI ST VINCENT continues to demonstrate its mission to provide development opportunities that empower young people to create positive change.

Four prospective members of JCI St Vincent recently completed their membership project by donating food items to the Catholic Diocese of Kingstown ‘Loaves and Fishes’ Soup Kitchen located at Rose Place, Kingstown.

The donations were handed over to staff member Bridget Bowens at the Soup Kitchen on Friday, April 27. Speaking at the handing over ceremony, prospective member Nick Francis highlighted the importance of JCI’s service to humanity as being the best work of life and thanked those who participated in the project which will provide hot meals to poor families in the community.

Public Relations Officer for JCI St Vincent, Terrance Williams, made an appeal to members of the general public and businesses in and around Kingstown to donate to the Soup Kitchen which provides “an essential service to the less fortunate in our community, especially children who are in need of help.” He also encouraged young persons to become members of JCI St. Vincent which “has a long history of providing excellent development programmes for young people”.

Young persons who are interested in becoming a member of JCI St Vincent may speak to a JCI Member or send an email to [email protected]
