St. Vincent de Paul asking for donations, volunteers ahead of Thanksgiving Day
BATON ROUGE- For the last four decades, St. Vincent de Paul has been serving the hungry on Thanksgiving Day.
"[We serve] thousands and thousands of meals on Thanksgiving Day. We know that the need is greatly up with inflation and the economy, we're going to see probably record numbers this year," Michael Acaldo, CEO and President of St. Vincent de Paul, said.
"Traditional feast: turkey, Thanksgiving yams and stuffing, green beans, cranberry sauce," Alcado said. "You never can get enough cakes and pies here at St. Vincent de Paul, and that's so very important. We're days away from Thanksgiving and we still need those."
