Help the Poor:
Alfred-Washburn Center (AWC) needs your help! AWC is a homeless facility operated by the Society of St. Vincent de Paul. Each day, this remarkable mission serves 100-130 homeless who visit to eat, shower, obtain clothing or to do their laundry. AWC needs volunteers on Saturdays to provide these much-needed services. There is a special need for volunteers on Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday who are comfortable interacting with the homeless to listen to their stories to help determine if anything can be done to break their cycle of homelessness. For further information contact at Deacon Bob Leblanc, 850-712-5790.
