Serving Dinner at Next Step Shelter

PWHDamien PWH SOUL Scholars and their families joined students from Sacred Hearts and St. Francis to prepare and serve a meal for the Next Step Shelter in Honolulu this weekend.  Students gathered to cook a giant pot of beef stew and rice and put together trays of nutritious food for the families.  The process took all afternoon and into the evening but our students enjoyed meeting the wonderful guests at Next Step and providing a meal for the families.  Students played games with the children, created glitter “tattoos” and played some pick-up basketball after dinner.  Families from all three schools, as well as representatives from the Augustine Foundation and PWH worked side by side to prepare and serve the meal.
